  1. Jan 24, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Prove that the equation x(t)=e-ζωnt(a1edt+a2e-jωdt) is the same as x(t) = Ae-ζωntsin(ωdt+φ)

    2. Relevant equations
    Refer to the first question's answer.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Have no idea how to start this problem. That is probably because I am low on funds and cant afford the txt. Please see if you can help and thanks in advance

    Use Euler: exp(jx) = cos(x) + jsin(x).
