## Critical damping coefficient in terms of spring constant Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
critical_damping_coefficient = 2*(sqrt(Spring constant)/(Mass suspended from spring))
cc = 2*(sqrt(k)/(m))
This formula uses 1 Functions, 2 Variables
Functions Used
sqrt - Squre root function, sqrt(Number)
Variables Used
Spring constant - Spring constant is the displacement of the spring from its equilibrium position. (Measured in Newton per Meter)
Mass suspended from spring - A mass suspended from spring is defined as the quantitative measure of inertia, a fundamental property of all matter. (Measured in Kilogram)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Spring constant: 50 Newton per Meter --> 50 Newton per Meter No Conversion Required
Mass suspended from spring: 0.25 Kilogram --> 0.25 Kilogram No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
cc = 2*(sqrt(k)/(m)) --> 2*(sqrt(50)/(0.25))

### Critical damping coefficient in terms of spring constant Formula

critical_damping_coefficient = 2*(sqrt(Spring constant)/(Mass suspended from spring))
cc = 2*(sqrt(k)/(m))

## What is critical damping coefficient?

Critical damping provides the quickest approach to zero amplitude for a damped oscillator. With more damping (overdamping), the approach to zero is slower. Critical damping occurs when the damping coefficient is equal to the undamped resonant frequency of the oscillator.

## What is critical damping and what is its importance?

Critical Damping is important so as to prevent a large number of oscillations and there being too long a time when the system cannot respond to further disturbances. Instruments such as balances and electrical meters are critically damped so that the pointer moves quickly to the correct position without oscillating.
