Sample Dynamics Problems with solutions?

  1. Oct 15, 2004 #1
    Any websites come to mind? I am trying to find and do as many example problems as possible. It seems that some of the approaches to problems in my text are unlike those I have seen in my REA solutions manual, although this one is great. I am particularly interested in examples of mass-pulley systems where there is an equation taking into account the total length of the cord and the distance the masses are from a fixed point (DATUM), and then taking derivatives to find v and a. I am unfamiliar with this method. But any type of dynamics probs would be good too. Thanks

    I second Will's post. I am looking for Dynamics problems. Pictures as descriptions (I.E. FBD's) help a lot. Pulley problems, Impulse-Momentum, conservation of energy in dynamic (I.E. spring) systems, planar problems, etc. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Have you looked at the Schaum's Outline on Lagrangian Dynamics? :smile:

    Edited to add the following link just in case anyone might find it useful.

    Hi. I am looking for simple problems on curvilinear solutions with solutions. Does anyone have any? Does any one know links? Thanks.

    You know, the do have books in the library on this guys (I know because I've literally seen them there on this exact topic).......
