This tutorial explains how to calculate the Q factor of mechanical systems.
Find out the quality factor of mechanical systems if mass , spring constant and Damping Coefficient are 10,3,7.
Mass (M) = 10 Spring constant (K) = 3 Damping coefficient (D) = 7
Quality Factor of Mechanical Systems
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
