PROBLEM 1.2
Assume that the mass and stiffness of the structure of the figure below are as follows:

kip s 2 kip
m 2 k 40
in in

in
If the system is set into free vibration with the initial conditions y0 0.7 in and v0 5.6 ,
s
determine the displacement and velocity at t1 1.0 s , for the given conditions in (a) and (b).

## Given the equation,

## The displacement y as a function of time t is given by the solution, yt ,

v0 + y0
y(t)= e t
sin D t + y0 cos D t
D

## Hence, the displacement at t=1 becomes,

v0 + y0
y1 e t1 sin D t1 + y0 cos D t1
D

y1 = 1.383 in

## The velocity v as a function of time t is given by,

t v0 + (( )) + D 2 y0
v(t)= e
