Damped Harmonic motion

IB Physics: Damped Harmonic motion

A good way to start this topic is with a demonstration of damping by doing a video analysis on a balloon pendulum.Although the equation isn"t on the syllabus it can easily be plotted with GeoGebra to see how changing the damping term affects the rate at at which the amplitude is reduced.Damping testPages 465 - 467DampingDamped harmonic motion investigation covers all aspects of damping using video analysis, an iterative...
