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.

  1. P and Q only
  2. P and S only
  3. P, Q and R only
  4. Q and S only

A single-degree-freedom spring-mass system is subjected to a sinusoidal force of $10$ $N$ amplitude and frequency $ω$ along the axis of the spring. The stiffness of the spring is $150$ $N/m$, damping factor is $0.2$ and the undamped natural frequency is $10ω$. At steady state, the amplitude of vibration (in $m$) is approximately $0.05$ $0.07$ $0.70$ $0.90$

Figure shows a single degree of freedom system. The system consists of a massless rigid bar $OP$ hinged at $O$ and a mass $m$ at end $P$. The natural frequency of vibration of the system is $f_n=\displaystyle{\frac{1}{2\pi }\sqrt{\frac{k}{4m}}} \\$ ... $f_n=\displaystyle{\frac{1}{2\pi }\sqrt{\frac{k}{m}}} \\$ $f_n=\displaystyle{\frac{1}{2\pi }\sqrt{\frac{2k}{m}}}$
