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!
