We note that the relationship between the basis {Ex , Ey , Ez } and {er , e , ez } is

as

(4.4)

Using the bases {Ex , Ey , Ez } and {er , e , ez }, the position of the block is given

rO = xEx

(4.5)

Then the velocity and acceleration of the block in reference frame F are given,

respectively, as

(4.11)

Now we already have F vO from Eq. (4.6). Next, since rP /O is expressed in the basis {er , e , ez } and {er , e , ez } rotates with angular velocity F A , we can apply

the rate of change transport theorem to rP /O between reference frame A and

reference frame F as

in the basis {er , e , ez } and {er , e , ez } rotates with angular velocity F A , we

The acceleration of the center of mass of the system is then computed using

Setting FO equal to M F aO , we obtain the following two scalar equations:

Solution to Question 42

First, let F be a fixed reference frame. Then, choose the following coordinate

system fixed in reference frame F :

Origin at Location of Block

Ez Into Page

Ey = Ez Ex

(4.61)

Now in order to solve this problem we need to apply the principle of linear

impulse and momentum to the system and/or subsystems of the system. For

this problem, it is convenient to choose the following systems:

System 1: Ball Bearing

System 2: Block

System 3: Bullet and Ball Bearing

Application of Linear Impulse and Linear Momentum to Ball Bearing

Applying linear impulse and momentum to the ball bearing, we have that

F

Fm = m vm mF vm

(4.62)

Now the free body Diagram of the ball bearing is shown in Fig. 4-3 where

Also, let

(4.64)

Then, substituting the results of Eq. (4.63) and the result of Eq. (4.64) into

Eq. (4.62), we obtain

Rearranging, we have

(4.67)

(4.68)

For the entire system we have that

(4.69)

where F G and G are the linear momenta of the system before and after impact.

Now we have that

Next, the free body diagram of the entire system is shown in Fig. 4-4 It is seen

P

Figure 4-4

where P

is the impulse

that the only impulse applied to the entire system is P

applied by the ground on the system. Therefore,

F=P

(4.73)

Substituting the results of Eq. (4.63), Eq. (4.72), and Eq. (4.73) into Eq. (4.69), we

obtain

(4.77)

Kinematic Constraints

We know that, because the bullet embeds itself in the block immediately after

impact the velocity of the bullet and the block must be the same. Therefore,

F

vm

= vM = v

(4.78)

F

v = vx Ex + vy Ey

(4.79)

Second, we know that the bullet and the block must move horizontally after

impact. Therefore,

vy = 0

(4.80)

Solving for the Impulse Exerted By Block on Ball Bearing During Impact

The impulse exerted by the block on the ball bearing can be solved for using the

results of Eq. (4.67), Eq. (4.68), Eq. (4.76), and Eq. (4.77). First, it is convenient

to solve for the post-impact velocity of the block and ball bearing. Because the

post-impact velocity of the block and the ball bearing are the same, we have

from Eq. (4.76) that

+ MvMx

(4.81)

Question 43

A block of mass m is dropped from a height h above a plate of mass M as shown

in Fig. P4-3. The plate is supported by three linear springs, each with spring

constant K, and is initially in static equilibrium. Assuming that the compression

of the springs due to the weight of the plate is negligible, that the impact is

perfectly inelastic, that the block strikes the vertical center of the plate, and

that gravity acts downward, determine (a) the velocity of the block and plate

immediately after impact and (b) the maximum compression, xmax , attained by

the springs after impact.

Kinetics

Phase 1: During Descent of Block

The only force acting on the block during its descent is that of gravity. Since

gravity is conservative, we know that energy must be conserved. Consequently,

F

E(t0 ) = F E(t1 )

(4.94)

where t0 and t1 are the times of the start and end of the descent. Now we have

that

F

E = FT + FU

(4.95)

Since the block is dropped from rest, we have that

F

T (t0 ) = 0

(4.96)

Next, the kinetic energy of the block at the end of the descent is given as

F

T (t0 ) =

(4.97)

F

U (t0 ) = mg r1 (t0 )

(4.98)

where r1 (t0 ) is the position of the block at time t = t0 . Now since the origin of

the coordinate system is located at the block at t = 0, we know that r(t0 ) = 0.

Consequently,

F

U (t0 ) = 0

(4.99)

Finally, the potential energy at the end of the descent is given as

F

U (t1 ) = mg r1 (t1 )

(4.100)

Now since the block is dropped from a height h above the plate, we have that

r1 (t1 ) = hEx

From Eq. (4.104), the velocity of the block in reference frame F at the end of the

descent is given as

q

F

v1 (t1 ) = 2ghEx

(4.105)

Applying the principle of linear impulse and linear momentum to the entire

system during impact, we have that

F

F

F = G(t1+ ) G(t1 )

(4.106)

Now, because the impact is assumed to occur instantaneously and neither gravity nor the spring can apply an instantaneous impulse, during impact there are

no external impulses applied to the system, i.e.,

F=0

(4.107)

(4.108)

Therefore,

F

G(t1+ ) = G(t1 )

F

G = (m + M)F v

(4.109)

Using the expression for F v

F

G = (m + M)

mv1 + Mv2

Ex = (mv1 + Mv2 )Ex

(4.110)

Then, noting that the plate is motionless before impact and using the expression

for F v1 (t1 ) from Eq. (4.105), we have that

Solving for v

Next, we know that the impact is perfectly inelastic. Consequently, the coefficient of restitution is zero, i.e., e = 0. Now we have the coefficient of restitution

condition as

(4.114)

(4.115)

v2 (t1+ ) n v1 (t1+ ) n = 0

(4.116)

F

Now for this problem is it seen that the direction of impact is along Ex , i.e., n =

Ex . Furthermore, since the velocities of the block and the plate are also along

Ex , we have that

F

F

v1 (t1+ ) n = v1 (t1+ )

(4.117)

v2 (t1+ ) n = v2 (t1+ )

(4.118)

v2 (t1+ ) v1 (t1+ ) = 0

(4.119)

v2 (t1+ ) = v1 (t1+ )

(4.120)

It is seen from Eq. (4.120) that the post-impact velocities of the block and plate

are the same. Now we have that

(m + M)F v

(4.121)

Consequently, using the expression for v

But since v1 (t1 ) = v2 (t1 ) v(t1 ), we have that

First, it is important to recognize that, because the impact between the block

and the plate was perfectly inelastic, the block and plate will move together

after impact, i.e., the block and plate will move as if they are a single body after

impact. Next, for this part of the problem we see that the only forces acting on

the block and plate are those of the three springs. Since the attachment points

of the springs are inertially fixed (in this case they are fixed in reference frame

F ), we know that the spring forces will be conservative. Thus, the total energy

of the system after impact will be conserved. Now the total energy is given as

F

E = FT + FU

v = vEx

(4.128)

K( 0 )2 = K( 0 )2

2

2

(4.129)

(4.130)

(t1 ) = 0

(4.131)

Now since the springs are compressing in this phase, we know that 0 will

be less than zero for t > t1 . In order to account for the fact that 0 < 0,

let xmax = 0 (t2 ). Then the potential energy in the springs at the point of

maximum compression is given as

2

K((t2 ) 0 ) = Kxmax

(4.132)

Then the total potential energy at the point of maximum compression is given

as

F

2

U (t2 ) = (m + M)g(h + xmax ) + Kxmax

(4.133)

2

where we note that the potential energy due to gravity at t2 is different from

the potential energy due to gravity at t1 because the position of the particle and

block has changed from hEx to (h + xmax )Ex in moving from t1 to t2 . Now,

using the results from phase 2, we know at t1 that

Solution to Question 48

Before beginning the kinematics for this problem, it is important to know which

balance laws will be used. Since this problem consists of two particles, it is

convenient to use the following balance laws: (1) Newtons 2nd law and (2) a

moment balance. Since it is generally convenient to choose the center of mass

as a reference point, the moment balance will be performed relative to the center of mass. Consequently, we will need to compute the following kinematic

quantities: (1) the acceleration of the center of mass and (2) the rate of change

of angular momentum of the system relative to the center of mass.

This problem can be solved using many different approaches. For the purposes

of this solution, we will show the following three two most prominent of these

approaches: (1) using point O as the reference point or (2) using the center of

mass as the reference point. In order to apply all of these approaches, we will

need to compute the following kinematic quantities: (a) the acceleration of each

particle, the angular momentum of the system relative to point O, and (c) the

angular momentum of the system relative to the center of mass.

Using the accelerations obtained in Eq. (4.210) and Eq. (4.211), the angular

momentum of the system relative to the (inertially fixed) point O is obtained as

F

HO = (rA rO ) mA F vA + (rB rO ) mB F vB

(4.212)

Noting that rO = 0 and substituting the results from Eq. (4.202) and Eq. (4.203)

Now we know that NA and NB must be orthogonal to the track at points A and

B, respectively. Consequently, we can express NA and NB as

NA

NB

= NA uA

= NB uB

(4.230)

where uA and uB are the directions orthogonal to the track at points A and

B, respectively. Now, since the track is circular, we know that the directions

176

orthogonal to the track at points A and B are along rA and rB , respectively, i.e.,

(4.235)

terms of er and e from Eq. (4.192), we have that

2mg = 2mg(cos er sin e ) = 2mg cos er 2mg sin e

(4.236)

With the resolution of forces completed, we can now proceed to solve the

problem using the two approaches stated at the beginning of this solution,

namely (1) applying a moment balance using point O as the reference point

and (2) applying a force balance and a moment balance using the center of mass

as the reference point.

Method 1: Point O as Reference Point

Since O is a point fixed in the inertial reference frame F , we have that

F

d F

HO = MO

(4.237)

F

reference frame F from Eq. (4.215), we obtain d F HO /dt as

F

d F

z

HO = 2m(a2 + l2 )e

dt

(4.238)

Next, using the free body diagram of Fig. 4-7), we have have the moment relative

to point O as

MO = (rA rO ) NA + (rB rO ) NB + (rg rO ) 2mg

(4.239)

177

Now since rO = 0, Eq. (4.239) can be written as

MO = rA NA + rB NB + rg 2mg

(4.240)

Now from Eq. (4.233) and Eq. (4.234) we have that the forces NA and NB lie in

the direction of rA and rB , respectively. Consequently, we have that

rA NA

= 0

(4.241)

= 0

(4.242)

MO = rg 2mg

(4.243)

rB NB

Therefore, MO reduces to

Now we note that gravity acts at the center of mass, i.e., rg =

r = aer . Using this

last fact together with the expression for 2mg from Eq. (4.236), we have MO as

MO = aer (2mg cos er 2mg sin e ) = 2mga sin ez

(4.244)

F

Equating MO from Eq. (4.244) with d F HO /dt from Eq. (4.238), we obtain

z = 2mga sin ez

2m(a2 + l2 )e

(4.245)

(4.246)

Using the center of mass as the reference point, we need to apply a force balance

and a moment balance. Applying a force balance, we have that

a

(4.247)

F = NA + NB + 2mg

(4.248)

Using the expressions for NA and NB from Eq. (4.233) and Eq. (4.234), respectively, we have NA and NB as
