    We apply the notions of dampedness to second order, linear, constant coefficient, homogeneous differential equations used to model a spring mass dashpot system and introduce the notion of first passage time with several applications.

    We introduce several basic, but substantial, approaches to modeling the motion of a spring mass system using a standard second order, linear, constant coefficient differential equation obtained from Newton's Second Law of Motion and a Free Body Diagram. We do this using a set of data...
