# Linear damping oscillation

## Description

Damped harmonic motion is a real oscillation, in which an object is hanging on a spring. Because of the existence of internal friction and air resistance, the system will over time experience a decrease in amplitude.

Linear damping occurs when a potentially oscillatory variable is damped by an influence that opposes changes in it, in direct proportion to the instantaneous rate of change, velocity or time derivative, of the variable itself

## Variables

F | Force (N) |

c | Damping coefficient (N*sec/m) |

v | Velocity (m/sec) |
