This applet shows the solution of a forced damped spring-mass system: ,, , for .

You can adjust the damping constant , forcing angular frequency , forcing amplitude and initial conditions and by using the sliders, or typing a value in the box at the right and pressing Enter. The allowed ranges of these parameters are as follows: , , ,, .

The forcing term
is shown in green, and the solution *y* in red.
If you click on the graph, the coordinates [*t*,*y*] of the point where
you clicked are shown at the top left of the graph.
