q''+ 20 q = 100 sin(ωt) I have been asked to find all mathematically possible values of ω for which resonance will occur. From the homogeneous solution, q(t) = Acos(√20 t) +Bsin(√20 t), I can see that resonance occurs when ω=√20. My question is, should I also consider -√20? And if so, what is the significance of a negative angular frequency? Thanks.
