Phasor representation for a mass and spring

    Hi,

    While writing the fourier representation for the spring-mass system, we have the equation:
    (-jωm+B-S/jω).U(jω)=F(jω) with F,U,m,B and S being the force, velocity,mass, damping coefficient and spring constant respectively.

    From this equation, is it right to infer that :
    1) Force lags the velocity as F'(jω)= (-jωm) . U(jω)
    2)Force leads velocity as F'(jω)= (jS/ω). U(jω)

    However, physically the above argument doesnt seem to be correct. As force leads the velocity for a mass system and force lags velocity for a spring system.

    So could someone please correct me the mistake in my understanding.
