Homework Prob. 1.1
Consider the system below:
• A spool having a mass of m, a centroidal mass moment of inertia IG and
an outer radius of R that rolls without slipping on a horizontal surface.
• A block of mass M that is in contact with the inner radius of the spool and
is constrained to move only in a horizontal direction such that the block
does not slip on the spool.
• A spring of stiffness k that is connected between the center of the spool G
Let x describe the position of G as measured from the position of G when the
spring is unstretched. Using the Newton-Euler formulation, determine the
equation of motion for the system using the coordinat...
