1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Here is the equation for the general solution of an overdamped harmonic oscillator: x(t) = e-βt(C1eωt+C2e-ωt) 2. Relevant equations β decay constant C1, C2 constants ω frequency t time 3. The attempt at a solution I know (eωt+e-ωt)/2 = coshωt and (eωt-e-ωt)/2 = sinhωt but how do I implement this if there are constants? I tried to solve for the constants, but I just get a nasty expression in terms of x(o) and v(0) for each C (where v is the velocity) and this doesn't help with rewriting the functions.
