1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A mass M is suspended from a spring and oscillates with a period of .940s. Each complete oscillation results in an amplitude reduction of a factor of .96 due to a small velocity dependent of frictional effect. Calculate the time it takes for the total energy of the oscillator to decrease to .50 of its initial value. 2. Relevant equations unsure.... A=Ao*factor^N 3. The attempt at a solution I am unsure how to approach this. I did log .50 = t log(.96)^2 t= log(.50)/log(.96)^2 t=8.48 s but that was incorrect. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
