An underdamped oscillator`s amplitude decreases with the factor of e^-beta*T(damped) in a one cycle, but I am confused how to find the decrease of the amplitude after 10 cycles. Schould I multiply the factor by 10 like (10*e^-beta*T(damped) ) or when I am calculating the factor , should I just multiply the Td by 10 and then find the factor.( e^-beta*10*T(damped) ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

thanks
