forced damped oscillator

  1. Given a simple harmonic oscillator my'' = − ky with a given initial conditions y(0) = y0,y'(0) = v0 , write down the solution and verify that it work.
  2. Verify that the damped oscillator can be solved by equations of either the following forms :
    • y(t) = AeBtsin(Ct + D)
    • y(t) = GeHt where both G and H may be complex.
    • Explain how the real (A, B, C, D) are connected to the complex (G, H).
