Discussion 8: Name: TAM212, Spring, 2003 The vertical bar is fixed. The other bar AB (of uniform mass m and length L ) is initially held at the angle shown. It is attached to a collar that can slide vertically without friction on the vertical rod. End B of bar AB is attached to a vertical cable BC. If the bar is released from rest, what is its angular acceleration immediately after release? I c = mL 2 /12. Hint: set up three “kinetic” equations and two “kinematic” equations. For the latter, note point A of the bar can only accelerate vertically, and point B of the bar (at the moment shown) can only accelerate horizontally. = = x m F F A x (1) = = y m mg T F y (2) () ( ) ( ) () ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) k i j i j j i M α = × + + × = c zz A C I F L T L 30 sin 30 cos 2 / 30 sin 30 cos 2 / () α = 12 / 4 / 4 / 3 2 mL L F TL A () α = 3 / 3 mL F T A (3) () ( ) ( ) ( ) i j j i i j i k j r r k a a + α + = + + × α + = ω × α + =
