Fabiano, I am away from my desk this week (vacation). I will be returning Monday. YOur teacher expects numerical solutions or exact solutions? This is not a hard problem. Try to work on this until Monday. George

Hi,

Im Fabiano, mecanical engineering student.

My applied mechanics teacher asked for a school work in ecxel software.

I’ve been having some problems on doing this task, can you help me at all, please?

It’s a simple Spring-mass-damper system. #~~~{m}–[—-#

~~~ = spring

{m} = mass

–[— = damper

# = wall

# = wall

mass = 10kg

k = 60N/m

c = 80N*s/m

First I need to calculate the time required for the system to returns to its position of 10mm after it’s been abandoned from initial position of 50mm.

After that I need to make the following equation work in ecxel software: (can you understand what i mean?)

x=0,056623e^-0,8377t – 6,6228(10^-3)e^-7,1623t

I’ll be very grateful if you could help me on that!

Tks a lot.
