Unformatted text preview: treated as a particle. 2 more Unknowns! 45º θ Now we need to find α! Can do this by using relative acceleration equations Now we have 11 equations and 11 unknowns. A x , A y , T, N, a cx , a Gx , a Gy , α, α BC , a By and a Bx We can then solve for all unknowns. Reflection: Note that the initial acceleration is to the left. This makes sense given that the system is starting from rest and the moment on the bar is Clockwise. It is hard to decided whether the magnitude is correct, instead we have to trust our math. Note that doing the kinetics for plane motion is a long process....
