Homework Help: Spring mass on a rotating disc

  1. Nov 1, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I uploaded a figure demonstrating the problem
    w and i are constants and disc is horizontal. Disc mass is neglected. Vibrating mass only moves along the direction of springs -only horizontally at this position-
    [B]2. Relevant equations[/B]
    Lagrange equations
    D'alembert principle

    [B]3. The attempt at a solution[/B]
    Again, i uploaded my attempt at the solution.


    I think i have a problem with d'alembert equation. Also i am confused about coriolis component of acceleration.
