There are three cases possible:

. The magnitude of the impressed force is then nearly equal to the spring force. This zone is
called as stiffness dominated zone.

Q related to the damping provides the measure of the sharpness of the resonance. Larger the Q,
smaller is the damping.
For an undamped system, Q =
For critically damped system Q =
Note that, the power required is proportional to the square of the amplitude.
Thus power require at the label of measurement of the width is half that of resonance.
The points in the above figure are called half power points.
