Homework Help: System of 3 dampers, help finding position of one node, from the velocity of another

  1. May 29, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    there is a system of 3 dampers, attached to a fixed surface, with 2 dampers in parallel, and one thats in series to the other 2 which r attached to the fixed surface.
    The equation asks if the velocity of the first node(node attached only to single damper) is a m/s, then what is the position of the second node(node between single dampr, and parallel dampers)

    2. Relevant equations
    (Cb and Cc are in parallel))

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Ive tried applying newtons second, but im pretty sure that isnt right, or im doing it wrong. The question I'm wondering about is (b), i also dont know how to start c, and d...so help with those would be great too
