An 8 lb weight stretches a spring 8 feet. The weight is moving through a surrounding medium that has a damping effect equal to the instantaneous velocity of the weight. Initially the weight is displaced 4 feet below the equilibrium position with a downward velocity of 2 ft/sec. Find the maximum vertical displacement.
