Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Units / equations for linear damping?

I am implementing an object on a spring into my project, and I am attempting to set the linear damping of the object such that the object's motion is critically damped. In other words, the object will spring to rest as quickly as possible without oscillating.

I would like to be able to calculate a value for Linear Damping based on the object's mass. However, there are no units on this value and I can find nothing online explaining the equations which use this value.

Can someone please tell me the relationship between the Linear Damping value and the drag force applied? Or explain why what I am trying is not possible?
