Lecture# Harmonic Oscillator: Damped Regimes

Description

This lecture covers the analysis of a harmonic oscillator under different damping regimes, focusing on the case of strong damping where the characteristic equation roots are real. The solutions and general form of the equation are discussed, along with the determination of constants from initial conditions. The lecture also explores the critical damping regime, where the characteristic equation roots coincide. Illustrations and examples are provided to enhance understanding.
