AE 352: Aerospace Dynamics II, Fall 2008 Homework 7 Due Friday, October 24 Problem 1. Write down the constraint equations for each of the following descrip- tions. Note that you must first identify the generalized coordinates. In your answer, also specify the number of degrees of freedom before and after the constraint, and whether the constraints are holonomic or nonholonomic. a) A particle is constrained to lie in a horizontal plane. b) A particle is attached to a massless inextensible rod in a vertical plane. The end of the rod opposite the mass is constrained to be attached to a pivot located at
