Unformatted text preview: ME 240: Introduction to Dynamics and Vibrations Mechanical Engineering Department The University of Michigan Fall 2009 Computer Assignment #1 Solution October 9, 2009 Prepared by Joosup Lim ( jooslim@umich.edu ) NOTE: 1. Free body diagram is shown in Fig.( 1(a) ). y x F mg e ^ v m d (a) Free body diagram y x v . . (b) Relation between x , y and v Figure 1: Free body diagram and velocities in x and y components 2. Using Cartesian coordinates, and Newtons second law, or F = m a , we can write the equations as, summationdisplay F x : F d cos = m x (1) summationdisplay F y : F d sin  mg = m y (2) As one can see from Fig.( 1(b) ), sin and cos are simply as, cos = x v sin = y v 1 Hence, the equations of motion are shown as, summationdisplay F x : F d x v = m x (3) summationdisplay F y : F d y v mg = m y (4) 3. Assuming no aerodynamic drag force ( F d = 0 ), from equation of motions, one can simply get x = 0 y = g First, one can find the time, t , when the stone hits the ground ( y = 0 ) from y = g , y = g y = gt + v sin y = 0 = 1 2 gt 2 + v t sin + 1 . 82 One may get t = . 174 , 2 . 135 , and take positive value. Hence the travel time is t = 2 . 135 [sec]. Horizontal travel distance ( x ) with respect to time t can be obtained as, x = 0 x = v cos x = v t cos Hence, the travel distance is x ( t = 2 . 135) = 20 . 53 [m] Note before solving 4. and 5....
