Exam 2 2.003 Dynamics and Vibrations This is a closed book quiz. Each student may bring two, sides of an 8; x 11 inch sheet of self-prepared notes. Problem 1 (lOpts) Collar B can slide along rod AC and is attached by a pin to a block that can slide in the vertical slot shown. The block is acted upon by a force P and a torque M is applied to the rod AC at the pivot point A. All sliding and rotating contacts are frictionless. (i) Determine the generalized force conjugate to the generalized coordinate 0. (ii) State the principle of virtual work and apply this ; princi determine the torque M required to maintain equilibrium.
