How to Calculate Damping Ratio or Damping Factor?
Damping Ratio or Damping Factor calculator uses Damping Ratio = Damping Coefficient/(2*sqrt(Mass*Spring Constant)) to calculate the Damping Ratio, Damping Ratio or Damping Factor 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.
