## What do you mean by damping force?

## What is the damping force of a Bob?

- Thus, the
**damping force**is proportional to the velocity of the bob and acts opposite to the direction of the velocity. If the**damping force**is F d, we have,

## What is the damping force in continuous control?

- In continuous control, the damping force is not limited to the minimum and maximum states alone, as was the case for the on–off skyhook control. As illustrated in Figure 7B the damper can provide any damping force in the range between the minimum and maximum limits.

## What is meant by velocity-squared damping?

- The damping force of the fluid in this case is directly proportional to a quantity slightly less than the square of the body’s velocity and, hence, is referred to as velocity-squared damping.
