Figure 1B: The spring is at its free length when all the coordinates x1, x2, θ1, and θ2 are zero. The two pin joints on mass m1 may be treated as torsional dampers, cT. Assume mass m2 remains in contact with and slides on the surface with coefficient of friction µ. Also, assume θ1>0 and θ2>0.

1. (10 pts.) For the system in Figure 1B, write two kinematics equations. Your equations should relate the coordinates x1, x2, θ1, and θ2. 2. (10 pts.) Write an expression for the total potential energy for the system in Figure 1B. 3. (10 pts.) For the system in Figure 1B, draw a free-body-diagram of mass m1. 4. (10 pts.) Write a state variable model for the following equation of motion representing a bungee jumper. Be sure to clearly define your state variables. 5. (10 pts.) Is a system described by the following ODE with input f(t) BIBO stable? Justify your answer.
