Differential equations problem: A mass of 0.5 kg stretches a spring 0.05 m. The mass is in a medium that exerts a viscous resistance of 2 N when the mass has a velocity of 4 m/s. The viscous resistance is proportional to the speed of the object. Suppose the object is displaced an additional 0.03 m and released. Find an function to express the object's displacement from the spring's equilibrium position, in m after t seconds. Let positive displacements indicate a stretched spring, and use 9.8 m/s^2 as the acceleration due to gravity.
