The free (unforced) excitation may be obtained, for example, by giving an initial condition excitation to the system and then allowing it to respond freely. Two important characteristics which can be determined in this manner are: 1. Stability 2. Speed of response The stability of a system implies that the response will not grow without bounds when the excitation force itself is finite. This is known as bounded input bounded output (BIBO) stability. In particular, if the free response eventually decays to zero, in the absence of a forcing input, the system is said to be asymptotically stable.

Hence, yð0 Þ ¼ 0 and y_ ð0 Þ ¼ 0: Also, when an impulse is applied over an infinitesimal time period ½0 ; 0þ the system will not be able to move through a finite distance during that period. 101 will also be zero. 101 will be unity. 100) the initial conditions will become yð0þ Þ ¼ 0 and y_ ð0þ Þ ¼ v2n ð1:102Þ þ Also, beyond t ¼ 0 the excitation uðtÞ ¼ 0; according to the definition of an impulse. 102.
