The suspension (four springs) of a mass 2,603 kg car sags a distance of 23.2cm when the entire weight of the car is placed on it The effective amplitude decays to 51.6% of its initial value in 4 oscillations (exact). What is the value of the damping constant b of one of the springs (in kg/s)? (If necessary use g=9.84m/s2


any help at all would be much appreciated thank-you
