Damn analytical mechanics (2)

  1. Apr 2, 2005 #1
    Hi guyz, I taked the picture attached with my mobile directly from the book, please help me to find the weights of A,B (not masses), and the friction coefficient (f) for A on the Horizontel plane, and note, the rope isn't able to change lenght, System is static, A,B are equal, weight of K is Q

    NOTE : I NEED TO FIND THE SOLUTION OF THIS SYSTEM USING THE ANALYTICAL MECHANICS AND LAGRANGES EQUATION (NOT THE NEWTONIAN VECTOR MECHANICS)

    The Answer is:
    [tex]P_A = P_B = \frac{Q}{2}[/tex]
    [tex]f=1[/tex]

    Lagranges equation:

    [tex]\frac{d}{dt} \frac{\partial L}{\partial \dot{q}} - \frac{\partial L}{\partial q} = 0[/tex]

    [tex]L = T - u[/tex]

    L is the langrangian, T is kinetic energy, u is potential energy, q is generalized coordinate,

    First, how many degrees of freedom are there?
    Second, what generalized variables would you like to define?

    Only what i have written, i don't know how many freedom degrees, the question has only the information A = B, K weight is Q, and that diagram,

    I'M NERVOUS OF THAT PROFRSSOR, HE MADE THAT BOOK STUPIDLY, IF YOU SAW IT YOU WILL KILL HIM, NOTHING IS CLEAR !!!
