# Vibration - Dynamics

## Homework Statement

Determine the max and min values of x and their times from 0 to 2s
initial conditions X0 = 0, V0 = 1m/s

## Homework Equations

Undamped force vibration:
m$$\ddot{x}$$+kx = F0sin$$\omega$$t
Damped force vibration:
x = Asin($$\omega$$t - $$\phi$$) ,where $$\phi$$=phase ans A=amplitude
NB $$\omega$$ should not be superscripted

## The Attempt at a Solution

ive drawn a free body diagram as follows

forget to add m$$\ddot{x}$$ coming off the side.

resolving forces:
$$\sum$$Fx = m$$\ddot{x}$$ = -cx - kx + F

m$$\ddot{x}$$ + cx + kx = F

Not sure where to go from here, ultimately i need to plot a graph to show the response of the 10kg mass and see where the max and min distances (x) happen and at what times

The damping force is proportional to the velocity and not displacement. Then you would solve the 2 homogenous solutions and the steady state solution. You can find how to solve the ODE or the actual solutions on many websites.
