2.032 DYNAMICS Fall 2004 Problem Set No. 9 Out: Wednesday, November 17, 2004 Due: Wednesday, November 24, 2003 at the beginning of class Problem 1 Consider a wheelbarrow with a wheel of negligible mass, as shown in the figure below. The distance between the center of mass C of the wheelbarrow and the center of its wheel D is l . The handles of the wheelbarrow are of length h , and are pushed at their tips by the forces F A and F B . The time-dependent angles between the forces and the handles are given by α ( t ) and β ( t ), respectively. The wheel rolls without slipping. The centroidal moment of inertia and the mass of the wheelbarrow are given by I c and m , respectively. With the position of C and the orientation of the wheelbarrow as generalized coordinates, derive the equations of motion using Lagrange multipliers.

(a) By introducing generalized moments associated with the coordinates ϕ and ψ , reduce the set of equations of motions to a single equation of motion for ν . (b) For p = 0, sketch the trajectories of the above equation on the ( ) phase plane for different values of p υ υ , & (select all other parameters to be equal to one)....
