# The damping force on an oscillator is directly proportional to the velocity. The units of the constant of proportionality are: Option 1) Kgms-1 Option 2) Kgms-2 Option 3) Kgs-1 Option 4) Kgs

S Sabhrant Ambastha

As we discussed in

$F\propto v\:=\:F=Kv$

$K\:=\:\frac{F}{V}\:=\:\frac{Kg\:ms^{-2}}{ms^{-1}}\:=Kgs^{-1}$

Option 1)

Kgms-1

This option is incorrect.

Option 2)

Kgms-2

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)

Kgs-1

This option is correct.

Option 4)

Kgs

This option is incorrect.
