Problem 2: Springdashpot system in parallel with an applied force[edit]
Question[edit]
Derive the equation of motion of the spring  mass  dashpot in Fig. 53, in K 2011 p. 85, with an applied force r(t) on the ball.
Solution[edit]
There are 2 possible cases that can occur in this problem, depending on the direction of the applied force.
In both cases,
Case 1[edit]
The applied force is in the positive direction, and therefore the displacement is in the positive direction.
From the Free Body Diagram, we get the equation
Rearranging the equation, we get
Replacing Force variables, we get
Case 2[edit]
The applied force is in the negative direction, and therefore the displacement is in the negative direction.
From the Free Body Diagram, we get the equation
Rearranging the equation, we get
Replacing Force variables, we get
Conclusion[edit]
Since both cases return the same solution, the equation of motion is derived as:

Problem 3: Springdashpotmass system[edit]

Given[edit]
springdashpotmass system
Solution[edit]

is the inertial force
is the internal force
is the applied force

Assumptions:[edit]
 Motion in the horizontal direction
 Massless spring
 Massless dashpot
 massless connections
Solution:[edit]
To analyze the system we look at the kinematics and kinetics of the system
Kinematics: This involves the displacement which affects the mass. The displacement, represented by:
 : This is the total displacement of the spring plus the displacement of the dashpot.
 : represents the displacement of the spring
 : represents the displacement of the dashpot
Kinetics: this involves the forces associated with the displacements. The spring and dashpot are in series, therefore at any section in the series the internal for will be the same. This is denoted as:. The force in the dashpot is proportional to the first time derivative of displacement (velocity)
Where : is the spring constant.
 is the damping coefficient.
and: is the velocity of the dashpot. From this we get : which presents : in terms of :
The constitutive relations:
The spring force is equal to the spring constant times the displacement of the spring.
The damping force from the dashpot is equal to the damping coefficient times the velocity.
this presents two unknown dependent variables by using the relation
Becomes:
now we can rewrite the equation of motion:
as :
However >:
so we get:

Problem 6[edit]
For each ODE in Fig.2 in K 2011 p.3 (except the last one involving a system of 2 ODEs), determine the order, linearity (or lack of), and show whether the principle of superposition can be applied.
Given[edit]
,
Solution[edit]
The order of an ODE is found by looking for the highest derivative. If an ODE is linear, than the principle of superposition can be used by finding the solution to the homogeneous equation and finding the particular solution and then adding up the two. If an equation is not linear, then the principle of superposition cannot be applied.
