Write neatly and clearly for partial credit. Cross out any material you do not want graded. 4. Leave one empty seat between each of you. Name : Problem 1 : /25 Problem 2 : /25 Problem 3 : /20 Problem 4 : /30 Total : /100 1 Problem 1 (25 Points) 2 M 1 M L L The above figure shows a pendulum made of a massless rigid rod linking two masses M 1 and M 2 located at distances L and 2 L from the pivot of the pendulum. The pendulum is given initial conditions (0) 6 = 0 and (0) = 0. (a) Write the total and constant energy deviation of the system E as a function of and . (b) Show the pendulum angle ( t ) is governed by the following nonlinear second-order differential equation: ( M 1 L 2 + 4 M 2 L 2 ) + ( M 1 + 2 M 2 ) gL sin = 0 (c) Assuming that M 1 = M 2 = M and (0) is small enough so that sin ( t )...
