Q. 18 Which of the following statements are TRUE for damped vibrations?
P. For a system having critical damping, the value of damping ratio is unity and
system does not undergo a vibratory motion.
Q. Logarithmic decrement method is used to determine the amount of damping
in a physical system.
R. In case of damping due to dry friction between moving surfaces resisting force
of constant magnitude acts opposite to the relative motion.
S. For the case of viscous damping, drag force is directly proportional to the
square of relative velocity.
(A) P and Q only
