± ± ± 16.61 Handout #7 Prof .J. P .How April 3, 2003 Prof. J. Deyst Due: April 10, 2003 16.61 Homework Assignment #7 1. In the March 2001 edition of the National Geographic magazine, one of the questions to the Ask us column is Is it true that when you flush a toilet, water circulates clockwise in the Northern Hemi­ sphere and counterclockwise in the Southern Hemisphere? What do you think led the reader to ask this question, and what would your answer be, and why? 2. Consider a body with 30 I xy I xz I = 10 20 I yz 0 I zy 30 and angular velocity ω =10 ± i +10 ± j +10 ± k If H = 200 ± i + 200 ± j + 400 ± k Find: (a) Values for I zy , I xy , I xz , I yz (b) The moment of inertia about ω (c) Rotational kinetic energy (d) Principal moments of

It is disturbed slightly and falls. (a) Given that the rod is a rigid body (6 degrees of freedom) explain why there is only one degree of freedom in this problem. (i.e. List the 5 constraints.) (b) Derive an expression for the motion of the rod by: Using as the generalized coordinate, Finding T and V , Finding L , the Lagrangian Function, and Applying Lagranges Equation to solve for the equation of motion in terms of and its time derivatives. 2...
