Similar to a Texas Tower experiment (except for this problem the driving force is not applied.) The mass is 0.211 kg, and the spring constant is 21.1 N/m. The Q of the system is 4.00.

Determine the system frequency of oscillation with damping, but without driving force. Determine also the period of oscillation, T.

Determine the values of b and of γ (including proper units).

I am not sure how to use the formulas in either cases...

I have no idea what a Texas Tower experiment is and neither does Google. Please enlighten me so I can answer your question.

A Texas Tower Experiment, is simply a mass-spring system.
