- Homework Statement:
- A device (Fig. 1.26) consists of a smooth L-shaped rod located in a horizontal plane and a sleeve A of mass m attached by a weightless spring to a point B. The spring stiffness is equal to x. The whole system rotates with a constant angular velocity co about a vertical axis passing through the point 0. Find the elongation of the spring. How is the result affected by the rotation direction?
- Relevant Equations:
P = mg
F = minus kx
