1) The mechanism which powers the clock (using a harmonic oscillator to keep time with friction) Since the clock has friction the oscillation amplitude decreases in time. If the oscillation amp is unity at t=0 what will the amp be after 10 sec?

I believe we need to use the equation w=sq rt(k/m-(c/2m)^2)

But i'm not exactly sure what is the correct way to arrpoach this problem, Any hint would be appreciated!! thanks!
