Consider the initial value problem:

y''+(gamma)y'+y=k(delta)(t-1), y(0)=0, y'(0)=0

where k is the magnitude of an impulse at t = 1 adn (gamma) is the damping coefficietnt(for resistence).

Let (gamma)=1/2. find the value of k for which the response has a peak value of 2; call this value k1..

evnthough I am taking this diff equ course, i have difficult understanding the physical meaning of this equation... what does peak value mean... and how do i find k w/ this peak value?

thanks alot
