# Now let us consider a spring-mass system with more details

```Now let us consider a spring-mass system with more details.
Consider a block of mass M hanging from the end of a vertical
spring of un-stretched length L and a dashpot damper with
damping coefficient c.

Exercise: Consider a mass of 0.5 kg with spring constant k = 2
N/m in an undamped, unforced mass-spring system. Assume
the mass is displaced 0.4 m from equilibrium and released.
Describe the long term behavior of the system.

Oscillating Solutions: sin/cos and Shifted-cos Forms
Remark:
We can always write the general solution of an undamped
unforced spring system in either of two forms:

Problem: Explain how this relationship helps us to understand
the behavior of solution when m comes in complex conjugate
pairs.
