A Lagrangian Dynamics Problem

  1. May 31, 2010 #1
    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:)

    unfortunately nothing, I guess there is nonholonomic constraint
    thanks

    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.
