Write an expression for the kinetic energy of the three masses, shown in Fig.

Coordinate Systems and Transformation Equations Section 2. Would the expression for T be altered if the springs were removed? Equations of Motion of a charged dumbbell in an electric and magnetic field.

The rigid body, shown in Fig. Neglecting air resistance, the only force is the pull of gravity in the negative direction of Z.

Schaum’s Outline of Theory and Problems of Lagrangian Dynamics

The work xchaum on the particle is given by 2. The equations of motion 1 and 2 are very simple and hence all steps could be carried out without difficulty. Therefore W again depends on the path. Neha Gupta marked it as to-read Oct 24, The support on which D u Fig.

A rotating platform is mounted on the ground with axis of rotation vertical. If the forces are of such a nature depend on coordinates in such a way that when the system is displaced from one configuration to another the work done by the forces depends only on the initial and final coordinates of the particles, the forces are said to be conservative and the system is referred to as a conservative system.


The bead of mass m can slide along the smooth rod OA which is made to rotate about O in the XY plane with constant svhaum lar velocity w. But if its motion is restricted to a line bead on a rigid wireonly one coordinate is sufficient. Here ds is referred to as an “actual” or “real” displacement. A rigid body free to move in space, even though connected in any way to springs.

Let us consider three cases: Of course the vector nature of force, velocity, acceleration, etc. It is frequently the case dchaum some or all constraints of a system are in motion. Also, of course, relations 5. In component form 1. Pendulum with a sliding support The pendulum of Fig. Description This book includes solved problems. No student is in a position to follow the development of this subject without a clear understanding of each of these topics.

While the truth of this statement is easily demonstrated with schahm examples Section 2. The cable of an elevator breaks and it falls freely neglect air resistance.


It should be noted that t may appear explicitly in 2.

As shown by the example above, relations 2. We shall not consider these equations further at this point since methods for integrating this type are treated in detail in Chapter Mass m, shown in Fig. The above meaning of qv-lines serves lageangian useful purpose in what follows. Hence in the XY plane, x and 6 may be regarded as coordinates.

Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. This topic could constitute a sizeable chapter in itself. The frame and armature have moments of inertia h and h respectively about the axis of the shaft. Suppose the confining surface is a sphere of constant radius r — C.

Schaum’s Outline of Lagrangian Dynamics

Let F, with components F x ,F y ,F zrepresent the vector sum of all forces externally applied, those due to springs, gravity, the force of constraint, etc. Let a represent the position of the system with no motion applied to Mechaincs and m in equilibrium under the action of gravity and the spring.

Upon introducing generalized coordinates into 3.
