Problem No. 4 – 20 points Name A taut string having a mass per length of ρ and tension T is stretched between
two supports separated by a distance of L. On the left end support, the string is
attached to a block of mass M that is free to slide on a smooth vertical guide. A
spring of stiffness is attached between this block and ground. On the right end
support, the string is attached to ground. Ignore the influence of gravity in your
analysis of this system.
a) Derive the boundary condition for the left end of the string. You must
present a correct free body diagram to receive full credit for this derivation.
b) Determine the characteristic equation that governs the natural frequencies
of this system. Use M / "L = 1 and kL / T = 2 . Your characteristic equation
should be in terms of functions of "L , where " = # $ / T . ! ! ! ! M T, ρ k x=0 x=L 5 ME 563  Fall 2004
