## Damping Coefficient When a damped oscillator is subject to a damping force which is linearly dependent upon the velocity, such as viscous damping, the oscillation will have exponential decay terms which depend upon a damping coefficient.

## Underdamped OscillatorWhen a damped oscillator is underdamped, it approaches zero faster than in the case of critical damping, but oscillates about that zero.
