```Hello Mr. O'Donnell;

It seems to me that I have been
putting the decimal point
one place to the right too far.

According to this info plugged into the
equation
Hm=0.031
H=1/sqr(2)
He=H-Hm
G=2.99V/(in/sec)
M=33oz
During Summer When Hot Rg=440 Ohms
Rt = G^2/ (2mW0He)
I get the following results
Rt = (100*2.99/2.54)^2/(2*0.935534*2*Pi*(1/sqr(2)-0.031))
Rt=1743 ohms
so this should mean the damping resistor
would be Rt-Rg=Rd = 1743-440=1303 OHMS
Since I cut this Rd in half to fit into my circuit
I need two resistors with my instrumentation amp
of 1303/2 or 652 ohms (cant really see 1/2 ohms)

This should give me butterworth like rolloff for damping.

If the mechanical damping were like Hm=0.31
Id need a RT of 3300 ohms instead of 1743 ohms

So I have been using totally wrong numbers till now
to plug into this equation.

just will waiut to see what the new picture looks like.

Thanks for pointing me to the site.

Thanks PSN for pointing me to the formulas.

Regards,
geoff

Geoffery-
I have an old HS10-1 Hz, Z (~400 ohms) and recently compared it with a new 1 Hz China phone (3.5kohm).  At the low end 0.1 to 5 Hz
The China phone is not damped but becomes damped with the seismograph I use.
It did lose some gain when used with LC's system.

The HS-10 is a high-sensitivity, self-generating
velocity detector with extremely low natural frequencies. It has been used for nearly three decades to detect seismic activity in
applications such as seismology, structural analysis, etc.

Hello PSN,

I have never found the exact specs for the HS10-1
which i now have.

In regards to damping;
Which sounds more realistic,
h(mechanical) = 0.35
or
hm = 0.035

??
