How to get equation for overdamping

  1. Apr 28, 2015 #1
    i had trouble how to get this equation.can someone please explain step by step?
    i am sorry because i had no references at all.
    x(t)=e^γt/2m (B1e^qt + B2e^qt) which q=√γ^2/4m^2 -ω^2

    It's unlikely anyone can do anything to help you unless you clarify your question. Asking "how do I get X equation" is not enough. Please clearly state exactly what you'd like to know and where you're having problems.
