    I have this physics question to do and I get parts of it and I obv get the free body diagram but how do I work out part B of the question?

    A 10kg block is in a simple spring mass dashpot system. It is released from rest at distance x0 to the right of the equilibrium position. The stiffness, k, equals 50N/m.
    The damping coeeficient is 15N-s/m.
    A - Draw a free body diagram (which I've done)
    B - Calculate the natural frequency, damping ratio and damping velocity
    C - Calculate the displacement x as a function of time. t=0 is the time of release.
