Show that , if a driven oscillator is only lightly damped and driven near resonance, the Q of the system is:
where Q = Wr/2B Wr = resonance (angular frequency)
B = damping parameter© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 24, 2018, 8:21 pm ad1c9bdddf
This solution calculates the energy lost over one period using the resonance (angular frequency) and damping parameter to then find the Q of the system. All steps are shown with a brief explanation.
