16.61 Handout #5 Prof .J. P .How March 13, 2003 Prof. J. Deyst Due: March 20, 2003 16.61 Homework Assignment #5 1. Consider the catapult problem covered in class, but this time include the effect of gravity and add a twist . The catapult shown has a constantly increasing elevation angle, θ , and a constant rotation rate, about the vertical axis. Derive the equations of motion for the particle. 2. A particle moves in space subject to the constraint: dz =( x + y ) dy +( y +3 x ) dx .Is this constraint holonomic? How many degrees of freedom does the particle have? Find z = f ( x, y ) or if you can not, explain why there is no
