What site?

3. Someone got the imaginary part in problem of th site?

4. They probably wrote the imaginary part as
$\displaystyle \frac{\sqrt{-c^2 + 4mk}}{2m}$
This is actually correct since the imaginary pary is not going to have the $\displaystyle i = \sqrt{-1}$. Thus we have to factor this out of the determinant.

If we have $\displaystyle c^2 > 4mk$ we has $\displaystyle \sqrt{-1}$ or am I wrong?

6. No we have to have $\displaystyle 4mk > c^2$ If that is the case then
$\displaystyle w_1 = \frac{-c}{2m} + \frac{\sqrt{-c^2 + 4mk}}{2m} i$
and
$\displaystyle w_2 = \frac{-c}{2m} - \frac{\sqrt{-c^2 + 4mk}}{2m} i$.

Not have $\displaystyle c^2 > 4mk$ ?

8. If $\displaystyle c^2>4mk$ the solution would not be imaginary. Notice the way I have it written already assumes that we have an imaginary solution, and I have factored out the $\displaystyle i$. That is why it is $\displaystyle -c^2 + 4mk$ instead of $\displaystyle c^2 - 4mk$.

Sorry my confusion. Thanks

10. Can you help me or have any stuff about Mechanical Vibrations: Beats and Resonance

11. Do a google book search. I don't know much about mechanical vibration.

I did not find material to calculate the equations and I still do not understand mechanical vibration
