The Ejs Damped Driven Harmonic Oscillator Phasor model displays the motion of damped driven harmonic oscillator.  The resulting differential equation can be extended into the complex plane, and the resulting complex solution is displayed with the real part of this solution being the position of the oscillator.  The natural frequency of the oscillator, the damping coefficient, and the driving force and driving frequency can be changed via textboxes.  You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.  

Ejs Damped Driven Harmonic Oscillator Phasor model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_ehu_oscillations_phasors.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models.  Additional Ejs models for classical mechanics are available.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
