How to Calculate Damping Ratio?
Damping Ratio calculator uses Damping Ratio = Actual Damping/Critical Damping to calculate the Damping Ratio, Damping Ratio is a parameter, usually denoted by ζ (zeta) that characterizes the frequency response of a second-order ordinary differential equation. It is particularly important in the study of control theory. It is also important in the harmonic oscillator. Damping Ratio is denoted by ζ symbol.
