Missing solution for exponential equation
The peak response of an underdamped second order system is:
Mpt = 1 + e^((z*pi)/sqrt(1z^2)) Where Mpt is real. For Mpt = 5, the command: solve( 5 = 1 + e^((z*pi)/sqrt(1z^2)) ,z) Returns: Which is only the negative result. The same happens in the Solve app, I only get the negative result. The same code in matlab: clc; syms z; eqn = 5 == 1+ exp((z*pi)/sqrt(1z^2)); vpa(solve(eqn,z)) produces: ans = 0.40371275194342068038575605143555 0.40371275194342068038575605143555

Try both answers from matlab in your expression. :)

RE: Missing solution for exponential equation
What is inside e^(...) must be positive, so (z*pi)/sqrt(1z^2) > 0, this imply z < 0
Matlab positive z is a mistake. (Probably just return solved quadratic roots)
