I am given a damping constant of 20 dyne*sec/meter...do I need to convert this if the rest of my givens are, for mass = 2kg, k (spring constant) = 82 N/m.

I am trying to find the equation of motion of a spring but cannot solve it until I know how to convert/if I need to convert.

Thanks.

It will convert 20 dyne= .0002Newton


ok thanks!

    Light travels in a straight line at a constant speed of 300,000 meter per second. What is the acceleration of light? If it has a constant speed then it's not accelerating, is it? BTW I think it's 3x10^8m/sec or 300,000,000 m/sec.
