Problem 2

Problem 3 A machine of mass m, which excites a vertical sinusoidal force F(t) when running, is supported by the L-shaped cantilever frame of uniformly distributed mass, . The frame is idealized to be rigid, and supported by a spring, a viscous damper and a hinge as shown. Derive the equation of motion of the frame for small oscillation () (a) without gravity effect (b) with gravity effect. F(t)
