MATH 205 Mechanical Systems AND Electrical Circuits; Modeling The primary systems that are modeled by a second-order di⁄erential equation with constant coe¢ cients are of two kinds: mechanical systems consisting of a mass on a spring, with some damping provided by a dashpot (or shock absorber), or a simple electrical circuit with capacitors, resistors, and inductors. 8.5: Spring Mass Systems 1. Statement of the problem: Attach a mass of m kg to the end of a spring whose natural length is l meters. At time t = 0, displace the mass from its o equilibrium a distance of y0 meters and release with a velocity of 0 meters/second. Question: What IVP (initial Value Problem) models the resulting motion Assumptions: (1
