In the previous experiments the students have experimented
several times with oscillating systems. In contrast, in this
experiment they should observe the oscillation amplitudes over
longer periods of time, become familiar with their decrease over
time and measure it. This leads to the term damping, which should
be, however, introduced only qualitatively here and not as the
logarithmic damping decrement which is normally used.
The e function should not be handled here - even
though the results are in this form. Rather, it seems more sensible
to first - awaken their interest.
