This paper deals with two different methods to analyze the amplitude frequency response of an electrostatically actuated micro resonator. The methods used in this paper are the method of multiple scales, which is an analytical method with one mode of vibration. The other method is based on system of odes which is derived using the partial differential equation of motion, as well as the boundary conditions. This system is then solved using a built in matlab function known as BVP4C. Results are then shown comparing the two methods, under a variety of parameters, including the influence of damping, voltage, and fringe.
