I was given a spring mass system and asked to calculate the natural frequency by theorectical analysis and by using experimental data.

There was a difference between the natural frequency calculated theorectically and experimentally.

I was asked to discuss the difference in results and I wanted to know if damping is the cause for the difference in results .
