The Mass-Spring System

In this laboratory we will examine harmonic oscillation. We will model the motion of a massspring system with differential equations.
Our objectives are as follows:

  1. Determine the effect of parameters on the solutions of differential equations.
  2. Determine the behavior of the mass-spring system from the graph of the solution.
  3. Determine the effect of the parameters on the behavior of the mass-spring.
