    You should at least write up the equation before asking for help to solve it. So could you write the equation?

    What I need is the equation, the rest I can work from there

    I have not understood the figure ... The mass is attached to the spring and the dashpot?
    For the system in figure (I've attached), the equation of motion is:
    m[tex]\ddot{x}[/tex]+c[tex]\dot{x}[/tex]+kx=0
