Damping is an influence within or upon an oscillatory system that has the effect of reducing or preventing its oscillation. In physical systems, damping is produced by processes that dissipate the energy stored in the oscillation. Examples include viscous drag (a liquid's viscosity can hinder an oscillatory system, causing it to slow down), friction, etc. The damping ratio is a dimensionless measure describing how oscillations in a system decay after a disturbance. In this simulation, we'll experiment with the value of the damping ratio and how this results in 3 kinds of damping.
