Hi
The following question i am having trouble completing
The equation of motion of a mass on the end of a vertical spring is
(where y is the displacement of the mass from the static equilibirum position). Given that initially ( i.e at time t=0) the displacement (y) is 3 and the velocity (y') is 0, find the solution to the equation in the form .
This is what i have done:
what should i do next in order to get it in the form of .
P.S
Asserting that it can be done and then showing it not done! Nice, I will stick with as asked it can't be done. If it had asked for the solution in the form of course my answer would be different.
Also, don't mix degrees and radians (here you should only be using radians)
