AE 352: Aerospace Dynamics II, Fall 2008 Homework 5 Due Friday, October 10 Problem 1. Using x 1 and x 2 as coordinates, obtain the kinetic and potential energy of the system of sliding blocks shown in Figure 1 (assume no friction). Problem 2. Find the di erential equations of motion for a spherical pendulum of length l and mass m using the Lagrangian method (Figure 2). Be very thorough in defining your terms. Extra Credit: numerically solve the di erential equations of motion for initial conditions
