If I have mass-spring system with certain damping factor, what is the expected reduction in the damping if the mass is reduced by 25% and the spring stiffness by 50%? It is clear that the damping will decrease but how much? can anyone helps me in that?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
