26 Oct: Applications x'' + px' + qx=0. Sections 5.4.

```Slides on Section 5.4
Damped oscillations
overdamped, critically damped, underdamped [Chapter 5]
phase-amplitude form of the solution [chapter 5]
Undamped oscillations.
Harmonic oscillator.
Partly solved 5.4-20.
See the FAQ at the web site for answers and details.
Class notes transcribed the wrong coefficients. Corrected in FAQ.
Partly solved 5.4-34.
The DE is 3.125 x'' + cx' + kx=0. The characteristic equation
is 3.125r^2 + cr + kr=0 which factors into 3.125(r-a-ib)(r-a+ib)=0
having complex roots a+ib, a-ib. Problems 32, 33 find the numbers
a, b from the given information. This is an inverse problem, one
in which experimental data is used to discover the differential
equation model. The book uses its own notation for the symbols
a,b: a ==> -p and b ==> omega1. Because the two roots a+ib, a-ib
determine the quadratic equation, then c and k are known in terms
of symbols a,b. See also the web site FAQ for more details.
Beats.
Decomposition of x(t) into two harmonic oscillations of different
natural frequencies. Envelope curves. Sound waves.
Pure resonance.
Pendulum.
Cafe door.
