Unformatted text preview: 1.053/2.003 Dynamics and Control I Fall 2006 Problem Set 7 Out: Monday, October 29 th , 2007 Due: Monday, November 5 th , 2007 1. Oscillating slender rod An L-shaped groove is shown in the figure below. Two ends of a slender rod of mass m and length L are attached to identical springs, each with a spring constant k . Both the springs are fixed to the L-shaped groove as shown in the figure below. Both the ends of the rod are constrained to move only along the L-shaped groove. Ignore gravity for this problem. Choose appropriate generalized coordinate(s) and derive the equation(s) of motion for this system using the Lagrangian approach.
