1.47 Calculate the frequency of the compound pendulum of Figure 1.19(b) if a mass m T is added to the tip, by using the energy method. Solution Using the notation and coordinates of Figure 1.19 and adding a tip mass the diagram becomes: If the mass of the pendulum bar is m , and it is lumped at the center of mass the energies become: Potential Energy: Um g m g mg m g t t =− + + ( cos ) ( cos ) ( cos )( ) ll l 22 2 12 θθ θ Kinetic Energy: TJ J m m mm tt t =+ = + 1 2 1 2 1 23 1 2 1 6 1 2 2 2 ˙˙ ˙ ˙ () ˙ l l l Conservation of energy (Equation 1.52) requires T + U = constant: l l 2 1 6 1 2 ( cos )( ) ( ) ˙ −+ + += mg m g m m C Using a two term approximation of θ ( 2 / ), because a one term expansion is not enough, yields: l l 2 11 2 2 1 6 1 2 2 ( ) ( ) ˙ + + + = mg m g m m C Differentiating yields: ( ˙ )( ˙˙ ˙ ) 1 4 1 2 2 1 6 1 2 20 2 g l + ++ = l Rearranging yields: θ m t

1.48 Calculate the total energy in a damped system with frequency 2 rad/s and damping ratio ζ = 0.01 with mass 10 kg for the case x 0 = 0.1 and v 0 = 0. Plot the total energy versus time. Solution: Given: ω n = 2 rad/s, ζ = 0.01, m = 10 kg, x 0 = 0.1 mm, v 0 = 0. Calculate the stiffness and damped natural frequency: km n dn == = =− = −= ω ωω ζ 22 10 2 40 1 2 1 0 01 2 () .

1.49 Use the energy method to calculate the equation of motion and natural frequency of an airplane's steering mechanism for the nose wheel of its landing gear. The mechanism is modeled as the single-degree-of-freedom system illustrated in Figure P1.49. m x r J k 1 k 2 (Steering wheel) (Tire–wheel assembly) The steering wheel and tire assembly are modeled as being fixed at ground for this calculation. The steering rod gear system is modeled as a linear spring and mass system ( m , k 2 ) oscillating in the x direction. The shaft-gear mechanism is modeled as the disk of inertia J and torsional stiffness k 2 . The gear J turns through the angle
