Modeling Of A Magnet-Spring System With Damping

Wardatul Jannah, Mahdhivan Syafwan, Muhafzan Muhafzan


This research discusses the modeling of a magnet-spring system by taking into account the damping factor. This magnet-spring model represents the movement of a magnet suspended from the ceiling at the bottom of a spring, and directly below it, there is another identical magnet permanently fixed on the floor. The modeling of this system is a continuation of the study by Fay and Med (2005), which discussed the same system but ignored the damping factor.
