Unformatted text preview: is not systematic and clear. 1. A spring pendulum is attached to a rotating shaft by an arm (length d = 0 . 8m), as shown in the gure. At the instant shown, the shaft is rotating with the constant angular velocity = 0 . 4 rad/sec, = 30 , = 0 . 3 rad/sec and = 2 rad/sec 2 . The pendulum length is L = 1 . 3m and it is currently getting shorter at the constant rate . 1m/s....
