Lecture 6 Part 2: Damped oscillators

We extend the ideas from the first part of the lecture to oscillators which include damping effects. Writing the governing equation in a standard form and looking at the meaning of the damping…

Lecture 6 Part 1: Applications of Differential Equations - undamped oscillators

Here we look at how the the same (or a very similar) differential equation applies to several different engineering problems. We consider cantilevers, pendulums and a floating buoy.
