In the present work, we examine the role of nonlinearity in vibrational resonance of a forced and damped form of a velocity-dependent potential system. Many studies have focused on studying the vibrational resonance in different potentials, like bistable potential, asymmetrically deformed potential, and rough potential. In this connection, velocity-dependent potential systems are very important from a physical point of view (e.g., pion-pion interaction, cyclotrons and other electromagnetic devices influenced by the Lorentz force, magnetrons and mass spectrometers). They also appear in several mechanical contexts. In this paper, we consider a nonlinear dynamical system with velocity-dependent potential along with additional damping and driven forces, namely a particle moving on a rotating-parabola system, and study the effect of two-frequency forcing with a wide difference in the frequencies. We report that the system exhibits vibrational resonance in a certain range of nonlinear strength. Using the method of separation of motions, an analytical equation for the slow oscillations of the system is obtained in terms of the parameters of the fast signal. The analytical computations and the numerical studies concur well.
