## Solving an Ordinary Differential Equation in MATLAB with the ode45-solver

In this short post I will show you how to solve a second order ordinary differential equation with MATLAB. The goal is to separate a given differential equation of n-th order in n differential equations of first order. The following ODE for a single mass oscillator with damping d, external excitation F und spring stiffness c is given: A complete instruction can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1v9VNQsWhrDMLiVfgQL6aLLmJ2zguhdMk/view?usp=sharing In case you have a
