Homework Prob. 2.1
A homogeneous wheel having a radius of R and mass of M rolls without slipping on a
horizontal surface. A massless, inextensible cable is attached to the center of mass G of
the wheel and to a block B (having a mass of m). The cable is pulled over a massless
pulley. A spring of stiffness k is attached between G and a fixed wall. The coordinate x
describes the position of G, with x being zero when the spring is unstretched.
a) Use Lagrange’s equations to develop the EOM for this singleDOF system using
the generalized coordinate of x. Assume that the cable remains taut for all motion.
b) Using this EOM, determine the value of x corresponding to the equilibrium
˙x
position of the system. (Note: The system is in equilibrium when x = ˙˙ = 0 .) x

Homework Prob. 2.2
A thin, homogenous bar having a mass of M and length of L is pinned to ground
at point O. A particle P of mass m is free to slide on the smooth surface of the bar.
A spring of stiffness k and unstretched length of R0 is attached between pin O
and particle P. Let r be the radial distance from O to P and θ be the rotation of the
bar from a fixed vertical line.
a) Use Lagrange’s equations to develop the EOM’s for this twoDOF system
using the generalized coordinates of r and θ. Recall that the potential
energy stored in a spring is related to the square of the stretch in the
spring, where the stretch is equal to the difference between its actual
length and the unstretched length. Also, in writing down the velocity
vector of P, you might need to review the polar kinematics expression for
velocity.
b) Using these EOM’s, determine the equilibrium values for r and θ. (Note:

Homework Prob. 2.3
A system is made up of a homogeneous wheel (mass m and radius R), block A (mass of
3m) and block B (mass of 2m). The wheel can roll without slipping on A. Springs are
attached between A and ground, between B and ground and between B and the centroid
G of the wheel, with stiffnesses of k, 2k and 3k, respectively. The absolute coordinate x 1
describes the position of A, the relative coordinate x 2 describes the position of B relative
to A and θ is the rotation of the wheel measured from a vertical line. All springs are
unstretched when x 1 = x 2 = θ = 0 . A horizontal force F acts at the centroid G of the
wheel.
a) Use Lagrange’s equations to develop the EOMs for this threeDOF system using
the generalized coordinates of: x 1 , x 2 and θ.
b) Write these EOMs in the matrixvector form of: x
