The behavior observed when using a damping coefficient of zero is described in Section 14.2. You might want to compare the obtained graphs to the ones shown in Figures 14.7 and 14.9. Note that you can affect the phase angle by changing the initial conditions. The case when the damping coefficient is not zero is discussed in Section 14.6.
