1. Homework Statement
A figure is attached.
A string with length L connects two beads with masses M1,M2.
what is the equilibrium point?(in terms of the angle theta,as in the figure)
3. The Attempt at a Solution
well I know that I need to find the potential energy as a function of theta,and then find the minimum.
but I dont know how to express the potential energy in terms of theta
