    The following refers to the equation given in the attached file. Please reference file to understand question fully.

    A cars suspension after leaving a sharp ramp on the road, where x is the distance of compression of the suspension unit in metres. The mass M is 3000kg is the total load carried by the car. The spring's stiffness k is 12kN/m and the damping coefficient C is 9 kNs/m. If at time t = 0, x =20mm and dx/dt =0, determine the resulting motion of the car.
