1. ,
2. .

### Example 7-4

A mass, initially at rest, is subject to a forcing function shown below. Using the the method of convolution, determine the response of the system for

1. ,
2. .

### Example 7-5

A mass is initially moving such that at some time the mass has position and velocity . At that instant a step load is applied to the mass as shown below.
Determine the response of the system for using

1. Newton’s laws directly,
2. The method of convolution.
