Ok, so I am dealing with a critically damped oscillator in which the natural frequency(w) of the oscillator is equal to the coefficient of friction (y). I am given the force mfe^t and told to find a solution for x, where(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x'' +2yx' +w^2 =fe^t.

How do I go about doing this? The solution that I am supposed to find is Afe^t where A=f/4

I have to solve this for f=mfe^-t also, if this requires a different strategy, let me know I guess.
