I have an answer, but it perhaps isn’t quite as formal as you may wish ...


The damping term in an equation for SHM is going to be in the form #A = A_0 e^(-b.t)# where A is the amplitude.

As you cannot have units in an exponential function and time, t is in units of time, the constant b must have units of #1/(time)#
