# Time averages. Charge density wave systems

### LagrangeEuler

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
How to get equation
$\frac{d \theta}{dt}=-\omega_d+\omega_1\cos (\omega t)$
where $\omega_d$ is the average drift frequency and $\omega_1$ is proportional to the amplitude of the ac current.
from
$\frac{d \theta}{dt}=\omega_{co}(\frac{V(t)}{V_T}-\sin \theta)$
where $\omega_{co}$ is classical crossover frequency and $V_T$ is the dc treshold voltage,

2. Relevant equations
Time averages
$\langle A \rangle=\frac{1}{T}\int^{T}_0 Adt$

3. The attempt at a solution
I do not see the way how to calculate averages
$\langle V(t) \rangle=\frac{1}{T}\int^{T}_0 V(t)dt$
and
$\langle \sin \theta(t) \rangle=\frac{1}{T}\int^{T}_0 \sin \theta(t)dt$
Any idea?
