1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data By what factor does the amplitude decay in the time interval (which I had to find). E: stored energy γ:damping rate a: amplitude t: time Q: quality factor T:Period ω: frequency 2. Relevant equations Q = 2∏E/(ΔE) 3. The attempt at a solution I found the interval to be t=QT but "one cycle" indicates T=2∏? So I'm not exactly sure if I got the right answer for the quality factor by which the quality factor decays? I feel like there is supposed to be a numerical answer. Any insights? Did I mess up anywhere or took the wrong approach? Anything will help! Thanks!
