Hey Mathshelp246.

For this problem, do you need to use some kind of parametric function?

The reason I ask is that typically for a lot of these kinds of problems, you have specific parametric Differential Equations (DE's) that specify say a damped spring with certain parameters.

If you have that model and have been taught it in class, then I suggest you post it here so we can look at it.

Typically you will take this model (which has a number of free variables) and you will set those to either constants or functions and solve for your final value.
