Now let's try a problem on your own. A uniform slender rod with spherical ends is initially held in place as shown. The rod has a mass of 3.0 kg and a length of 6.0 meters. The kinetic coefficient of friction between the rod and surface is 0.15. The angle of is 70 . The rod is released and begins to fall (translate and rotate). Develop the appropriate simultaneous equations and write the MATLAB code that uses the symbolic solver to determine the linear acceleration of the center of mass of the rod and the angular acceleration of the rod. Hint: Your five unknowns will be agy, agy, a, a, and the normal force at A. Use the relative acceleration equation between G and A. Show your TA your functioning program. MECH 2120 Solving for Forces in MATLAB Page 2 The sum of the moments equation about the centroid is given by: EMC = TROX = Ica where Pro is the position vector of A relative to (from 0 to A). In this equation we do not know the magnitudes of # ora, but we do know their directions. In

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
