Problem Goldstein 5-23 (3 rd ed 5.10) We will designate the body frame unit vectors as i , j , and k , and assume they lie along the principal axes of the body. The space frame unit vectors will be designated as x , y , and z . In order to use Euler’s equations of motion, we need to evaluate the components of the gravitational torque N in the body frame. The torque can be written as N = Mgl k × z , (1) and it’s not di cult to express z in terms of the body frame unit vectors, so that one can easily work out the cross product. Equivalently, we see from Eq.(1) and Fig. 5.7 that N always lies along the line of nodes (the intermediate x axis used in de fi ning the Euler angles). Since the line of nodes always lies in the body i - j plane and makes the (Euler) angle ψ with i , we can write by inspection N 1 = N · i = N cos ψ , (2) N 2 = N · j = N sin ψ , (3) and N 3 = 0 , (4) where N , the magnitude of the torque, is easily obtained from Eq.(1) as N = Mgl sin θ . (5) The Euler equations of motion can be written as N i = I i · ω i ( I j

### 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.
