(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The amplitude of a torsional vibration decreases so that the amplitude on the 100th cycle is 13% of the the amplitude of the first cycle. Determine the level of damping in terms of the logarithmic decrement.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Is this simply ln(100/13)= 2.04

or ln(13/100)= -2.04?
