(a) mV ˙ γ = L - W cos γ + T sin α where L,W and T represent forces, m is a mass, V is a speed, and γ,α are angles. (b) What is the dimension of p in order for the following equation to be dimensionally homogeneous. m ¨ p + Ml sin( θ ) ˙ θ 2 = 0 where m,M are masses, l is a length, and θ is an angle. Problem 2 Consider the two pendulums of lengths a and b which are con- nected together and move in the ˆ e 1 - ˆ e 3 plane. Find nice expressions for e ¯ v P and e ¯ a P .
