The image attached is of an underdamped RLC step response. I know that I can find the damped frequency of the response by first finding the period of the wave, and manipulating the period such that I can do 2*pi*f.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If I'm looking at this waveform and the only info I know about it is this period and damping frequency, how could I figure the time constant?
