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 ff 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 ff erential equations of motion for initial conditions

### What students are saying

• 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.
