(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The bearing of a rigid pendulum of mass is forced to rotate uniformly

with angular velocity (see Figure P. 1.32). The angle between the rotation

axis and the pendulum is called θ.Neglect the inertia of the bearing and of

the rod connecting it to the mass. Neglect friction. Include the effects of

the uniform force of gravity.

2. Relevant equations

What represents the second term of the total kinetic energy of the system?

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the lagrangian mechanics to solve the problem.
