Assume that you are examining the characteristics of a suspension system of a 2000-kg automobile. The suspension "sags" 10 cm when the weight of the entire automobile is placed on it. In addition, the amplitude of oscillation de- creases by 50% during one complete oscillation. Estimate the values of k and b for the spring and shock absorber system of each wheel. Assume that each wheel supports 500 kg.

When damping is present , is slightly less than , but in most cases of interest the damping is sufficiently weak than .
