# Define damped oscillation?

Any oscillation in which the amplitude of the oscillating quantity decreases with time is referred as damped oscillation. Also known as damped vibration, http://www.answers.com/topic/damped-harmonic-motion

### Difference between damped and forced oscillation?

Damped (or free) oscillation occurs when an object is set to vibrate at its natural frequency while forced oscillation involves the application of a force to keep an object in constant or repetitive motion.

### What is un damped oscillation?

Oscillation that increases without limit. Eventually it will destroy things.

### What is damped oscillation?

Oscillations (vibrations) are damped when they are changed by some action. For example, touching an oscillating (vibrating) tuning fork with your finger is said to be damping it. The oscillation (number of Hertz) of an electrical oscillator, such as a TV tuner, is changed by varying the settings of the tuner.

### How damping progressively reduces the amplitude of oscillation?

When energy is lost from the oscillating system, the amplitude of oscillation decreases. When that happens progressively, we say that the oscillation is "damped". "Damping" is a description of the decrease, not its cause.

### Is it possible to have damped oscillation when asystem is at resonance?

Yes. You can have damping, independently of whether there is resonance or not.

### What is ment by damped oscillation?

It means the oscillations lose energy over time, getting weaker and weaker.

### What is difference between forced vibration and damped vibration?

Forced vibration: If a system is subjected to an external force, the resulting vibration is known as forced vibration if the frequency of the external force coincides with one of the natural frequencies of the system, a conditions known as resonance occurs (large oscillation). Failures of such structures as building, bridges, turbines and airplane wings have been associated with the occurrence of resonance.

### What are the two ways to increase the velocity of simple pendulum?

Answer #1: Some ways to increase the velocity of a simple pendulum are forced oscillation and damped oscillation. ============================ Answer #2: But the more common and conceptually much easier ways are to decrease its length or move it to a place where the acceleration due to gravity is greater. Also, although it's usually ignored, the period does become shorter as the width of the swing decreases. This really isn't relevant right now because, although you… Read More

### What does oscillations mean?

Oscillations are reoccurring and regular fluctuations between particular states within a system. These states could be discrete, such as a car's turn signal blinking on and off; continuous, such as a wave; damped, such as the gradual decay of the amplitude of a vibrating guitar string; or driven, such as the forced motion of someone on a swing. The states involved in an oscillation don't have to just be mechanical in nature. For example, the… Read More

### When there is a reduction in amplitude over every cycle of vibration then the body is said to have?

### How would you describe the motion of a buoy when a water wave passes?

It is a damped harmonic motion.

### Is it possible to have damped oscillations when a system is at resonance?

Resonance is a force that remains in a opposite position.It is also observed in physical media such as strings and columns of air. Any waves traveling along the medium will reflect back when they reach the end. It is possible to have damped oscillations when a system is at resonance.

### In a damped free excitation system when does maximum amplitude occur?

it will occur just before the resonance.

### What is critical resistance in circuit theory?

With respect to an RLC circuit, the critical resistance is the resistance which would critically dampen the circuit. This means a resistance lower than the critical resistance would create an under-damped situation, and higher than the critical resistance would create an over-damped situation. An underdamped circuit will ocillate, an overdamped circuit will decay exponentially over a long period of time. The critically damped circuit will immediately decay to zero (time dependent on the values of… Read More

### Why do low frequency waves travel longer distances?

High frequencies are more damped by air than low frequencies.

### Does frequency reduces when the waves travel over long distance?

High frequencies are more damped by air than the bass frequencies.

### What has magnetism to do with the ozone layer?

The magnetic field diverts most positive charges of the solar wind to the south pole, and "scoops" more solar wind than Earth would otherwise receive. Much of these positive charges are hydrogen, the hydrogen oxidizes to water vapor, and water vapor both prevents one method of making ozone and accelerates the decay of ozone. So the magnetic field makes the south polar hole larger than the north polar hole, and serves to deplete ozone generally… Read More

### How do you define flutter?

Aerodynamic Flutter is usually applied to wings or ailerons and is the unstable oscillation caused by interaction between aerodynamic forces, elastic reactions in the structure and the force of inertia. Unless damped quickly flutter will break a wing. The cure for flutter is usually to dispose the weights so that the centre of gravity of the wing is as far forward as possible. Ailerons, elevators and rudders are mass-balanced to prevent flutter. Flutter is a… Read More

We find that isolators that are incorporated into structures allow that building to move independently of the ground. This construction strategy permits the energy of the quake to be damped by the isolators, and this reduces the damage done to the structure.
