Homework Help: Solutions of the differential equation for the over-damped case

  1. Apr 10, 2012 #1
    I'm supposed to write the solutions of the differential equation for the over-damped case. The overdamped case is where ω<(1/2τ). I don't know how to write the solution.
    I know that when ω=(1/2τ) we get the stuff under the square root to equal zero, but I am unsure of what happens or what the solution is when it's less than that.

    It would be helpful if you would show the differential equation to us.
