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 $0.05$ $0.07$ $0.70$ $0.90$
