The damping factor and damping ratio both are same. Right?

Damping ratio ζ = C/Cc.

What is damping?

Damping mean balancing zero degree.

The gradual reduction of excessive oscillation or vibration and therefore of instability in a mechanical or electrical device, by a substance (eg. Any viscous fluid) is called damping.

What is damping?

Sufiyan said:   7 years ago
Damping ratio (z) = C/Co; where C = actual damping.

Co = Critical damping.

Both are same.

Damping factor is equal to ratio of actual damping coefficient to critical damping coefficient.

Damping factor is ratio between actual damping coefficient and critical damping coefficient.
