How to Calculate Q Factor of Mechanical Systems- Tutorial, Formula, Example

This tutorial explains how to calculate the Q factor of mechanical systems.

Formula:

Mechanical Quality factor =√MK / D
Where,
M=Mass K=Spring constant D=Damping coefficient

Example:

Find out the quality factor of mechanical systems if mass , spring constant and Damping Coefficient are 10,3,7.

Given,

Mass (M) = 10 Spring constant (K) = 3 Damping coefficient (D) = 7

To Find,

Quality Factor of Mechanical Systems

Solution:

Substitute the given values in the formula to find the value of mechanical quality factor,

Mechanical Quality Factor =√MK / D = √10 * 3 / 7 = √30 / 7 = 5.477 / 7 = 0.782
