The suspension system of a 1700 kg automobile "sags" 13 cm when the chassis is placed on it. Also, the oscillation amplitude decreases by 43% each cycle. Estimate the values of (a) the spring constant k and (b) the damping constant b for the spring and shock absorber system of one wheel, assuming each wheel supports 425 kg.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have looked at this problem for awhile, and I have no clue where to even start... So I was just looking for a little help to get started in the right place, thank you in advance
