Description This paper presents a simple, cheap and easily accesible demonstration experiment in two modifications. A typical example of physical system for which damping forces have to be involved into equations is a damped spring mechanical oscillator. Here we use two models of the damping force, being produced by Foucault currents and by the force of the drag in air.
