should have everything you need to solve this.
Hi,
I have a question I have been trying to get out, and I'm not having much luck by myself. I'm sure I have solved equations like this in the past, although I cannot find my notes anywhere to help. I have attached a screenshot of the questions, but it says to solve the equation for the harmonic oscillator given the initial conditions:
$$x(0) = x_0$$
$$ \frac{dx}{dt} = v_0 \quad at \quad t=0$$
Also I was assuming that this was the equation we had to work with?
$$ m \frac{d^{2}x}{dt^{2}} \quad + \delta \frac{dx}{dt} \quad + kx = 0$$
Can you please point me in the right direction? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks,
Cotty.
