1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Hi all, I need to derive differantial equations of system with lagrange multiplier method, a disk is rolling and a bar is fixed onto the point of a disk

2. Relevant equations



3. The attempt at a solution
please check my solution below, I derived T and V for Lagrange, all I need is help for constaints, lagrange multiplier equation. Thanks in advance:)

What specifically about the constraint is giving you problems?

unfortunately nothing, I guess there is nonholonomic constraint
thanks

A Lagrangian Dynamics Problem


It's not a nonholonomic constraint.

You have only two coordinates, β and θ. How are they related?

I guess you are right but that is the exact question that I m looking for the answer, how are they related:)

Really? It's basic geometry. Consider the height of point B.
