The vibration frequency of unforced spring-mass-damper systems depends on their mass, stiffness, and damping values. The ensuing time-behaviour of such systems also depends on their initial velocities and displacements. Real vibration systems have a source of energy dissipation and it is convenient to represent this ...

#### Solution Summary

The motion of the mass is determined for a suspended spring. The motion is described.
