Unformatted text preview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hqqc6gfVrtU&feature=related The dynamics of one type of flyball governor can be analyzed by reference to Figure 2 Using FBD on W, in z (vertical) direction (where down is +) under steady speed: (1) From a FBD on w, in z direction: (2) From FBD on w, in the n direction (in is +): (3) There are three equations in 3 unknowns. By eliminating T 1 and T 2 one can derive: (4) This can be solved for given weights, lengths and rotational speed by trial and error, guessing . This can also be done in Excel by rearranging Equation (4) to get Equation (5), which must be close to zero. Excels Solver can make this easy. < Flyball governor.xlsx > (5)...
