The EJS Damped Driven Harmonic Oscillator Phasor model displays the motion of damped driven harmonic oscillator. The resulting differential equation can be extended into the complex plane, and the resulting complex solution is displayed with the real part of this solution being the position of the oscillator. The natural frequency of the oscillator, the damping coefficient, and the driving force and driving frequency can be changed via textboxes.

This set of tutorial materials covers the topic of damped harmonic oscillators. Students examine qualitatively the motion of a mass on a damped spring to find velocity and acceleration at points along the masses path, using graphs. There is one tutorial using motion graphs to describe the motion. This material also includes a pretest, example homework, and test questions. This is part of a large collection of similar tutorial materials in intermediate classical mechanics.
