Unformatted text preview: x be the generalized coordinate used to describe the motion of block A. During impact testing of this system, block A is struck by a hammer that pivots about point O. The head of the hammer, P, is to be modeled as a particle with mass M, and the mass of the handle of the hammer is to be considered negligible. Immediately prior to impact, the handle is rotating at a rate of ω , as indicated in the figure below. The coefficient of restitution of impact of P with A is e. The duration of the impact of P with A is assumed to be very short. Pr...
