Shock absorbers, linear dampers, and dashpots provide absorption of shock and smooth deceleration in linear motion applications. These devices work by applying an opposing force that is proportional to the velocity of the moving object — the faster the velocity, the greater the force applied in the opposite direction. This decelerates the object slowly and smoothly preventing large shock forces. They are commonly used with springs to provide a resistance...
