    B Are angular & vertical velocity the same if the objects are connected

    think of a engine. it has a flywheel and a rod connected to it. a string had been totally wrapped around the rod and a mass is hanged from the very end of the rod. the system is in equilibrium. but as the engine starts to rotate, the rod with rotate as well and cause the hanged object to go...

    What causes the bending of this rod?

    In this video, a man applies an angular acceleration to the base of a rod. While the rod rotates, it bends. Why? What force is there that causes the bending, aside from rod's own weight? It seems to me to be the work of a fictitious inertial force. I was always taught that those forces don't...

    Lagrange for Rod/nail swinging from horizontal plane

    Hi! I need to figure out the Lagrange Equation for a rod or nail swinging from a horizontal plane. The thing is, that while it is swinging back and forth, the while nail is moving along the X axis as well. I was thinking to use 1/2mv^2+(1/2)Iø^2 . Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks.
