## Homework Statement

Concerning damped harmonic motion (mass on a spring using cardboard discs as dampers); for the equation (below) of the graph describing the effect of different sized dampers on the time taken for amplitude of oscillations to halve, what do

*b*(y-intercept) and

*n*(gradient) represent? (A=area of damper; T=time taken for amplitude to halve)

## Homework Equations

[tex]T=b.A^n[/tex]

(i.e. [tex]ln(T)=n.ln(A) + ln(b)[/tex] )
