The user can see how each variable affects a damped harmonic oscillator. Nice
applet and it is easy to use.

This applet works similar to the applet we ran in #2 but it demonstrates damped
harmonic motion and it doesn't show the action, only a plotted representation of

Allows the user to see the effects of changing each variable in a damped harmonic oscillator. Although there is no movement, the applet is informative nonetheless.
