% MEAM 147 Lab 5 % Moment Equilibrium and Rotational Stability: % Tipping and Moment-Induced Buckling % Professor K. J. Kuchenbecker % October 9, 2007 % Edited on October 15, 2009 % Description % ----------- % This script plots the theoretical relationship between applied load, P, % and angle, theta, for the inverted pendulum system that is stabilized by % a pair of springs at the base. Students using this script will set % the values of the parameters to match their experimental setup. Then % students can enter their experimental data in the m_applied and % theta_measured_deg vectors below. After the parameters and data have % been set, running the script will plot the theoretical behavior as a % solid line and each data point as a point. % Beginning % --------- % Clear previous variable values. clear; % Parameter Definitions % --------------------- b = 0.1079; % m, horizontal distance between pivot and spring attachment. L = 0.5588; % m, length of vertical member. d = 0.0254; % m, offset between pin where loads are applied and center of vertical member. *CHANGE AS NEEDED* m1 = 0.122; % kg, mass of vertical member. m2 = 0.026; % kg, mass of top crossbar pieces.
