    This is for a Lab report I am working on. Basically I have determined that for the circuit I have one real and two complex conjugate roots or eigenvalues. The question is how would I describe the damping being that there is a mix of real and complex conjugate roots. The roots are as follows if anyone needs or cares to know.
    k2=5.25*10^-9< 10.6°
    k3=5.25*10^-9< -10.6°

    The circuit if you need to know is a series RLC with 0.1H, 680Ω and 0.1μF source is 1volt. If my calculations are correct the current is 38<-88°μA.
