**Update Feb 1**In Problem 3, L_eq = H/2. Notation updated to unambiguous form - 1/s means rad/s, not Hz.

**Update Feb 2**In Problem 3, a typo was corrected: the text should refer to "zeta" as damping RATIO, not as damping coefficient.**Homework 3**

Answers to FAQ: In problem 3, you can treat the slider as a point-mass.

Damped frequency is defined only for underdamped systems, since for overdamped systems there are no oscillations in the output.**Homework 2**

Jan 8:**Problem 2 update**: Unstretched rope length L = 0.4 m

Jan 12:**Problem 2 update**: You can assume that the rope stays horizontal during the motion.

Jan 13:**Problem 2 update**: Use t_final = 3 in your simulation.

Jan 13:**Problem 3 update**: Typo, instead M_eff it should read M=200 kg, i.e., the total mass of the cantilever is specified. The oscillating mass is then 200/3 kg.
