frequency in terms of the parameters

Solution:

a) In addition to the coordinate θ identified in

the original figure, we also define x and y as

the displacment of the block and end of the

bar respecively. The directions ˆı and ˆ are

defined as shown in the figure.

A free body diagram for this system is

shown to the right. Note that the tension in

the cable between the bar and the block is

unknown and represented with T while the

reaction force FR is included, although both

its magnitude and direction are unspecified.

In terms of the identifed coordinates, the

angular acceleration of the bar αβ/F and the

linear acceleration of the block F

We can also relate the identified coordinates as

The equations of motion for this system can be obtained with linear momentum balance

applied to the block and angular momentum balance aout O on the bar. These can be

written as

Using the coordinate relations we can obtain the equation of motion as

b) In the above equation the equivalent mass, damping, and stiffness are

meq = 5mℓ2

beq = cℓ2

From these the damping ratio and natural frequency are

c) Evaluating the damping ratio and natural frequency we find that for the given values

of the parameters

ωn = 15.8 rad/s, ζ = 7.91×10−4
.

Therefore the system is underdamped and the general solution can be written as

where a and b are arbitrary constants used to fit the initial conditions. Evaluating θ(t)

θ(0) =ζ ωnb+ωn

a = 10 rad/s,

so that the general solution becomes

Problem 5:

In the figure, the disk has mass m, radius r,

and moment of inertia IG = mr2

mass center G and is assumed to roll without

slip. The identified coordiante θ measures the

rotation of the disk with respect to the equi-

librium position.

a) Find the equations of motion for this

system.

b) If the disk is released from rest with

θ(0) =π

gular displacement θ(t) for

m = 3 kg, r = 15 cm,

Problem 6:

For the mechanical system shown to the

right, the uniform rigid bar has mass m and

pinned at point O. For this system:

a) find the equations of motion;

b) Identify the damping ratio and natural

frequency in terms of the parameters

m, c, k, and ℓ.

c) For:

m = 2 kg, ℓ = 25 cm,

c = 0.25 N/(m/s), k = 50 N/m,

find the angular displacement of the bar

θ(t) for the following initial conditions:

θ(0) = 0, ˙

θ(0) = 10 rad/s.

d) for this motion, find the tension in the

cable connecting the rod and the block

as a function of time.

Assume that the system is in static equilib-

rium at θ = 0, and that all angles remain

small.

Problem 7:

The block shown to the right rests on a fric-

tionless surface. Find the response of the sys-

tem if the block is displaced from its static

equilibrium position 15 cm to the right and

released from rest.

m = 4.0 kg, b = 0.25 N/(m/s),

k1 = 1.5 N/m, k2 = 0.50 N/(m/s).

Solution:

An appropriate free-body diagram is shown to the

parallel, as the displacement across each spring is

identical. Linear momentum balance on this block

provides

(k1xk2xb ˙x) ˆı = m ¨x ˆı,

or, writing this in standard form

m ¨x+b ˙x+ (k1 +k2)x = 0.

Further, the system is released from rest so that the initial conditions are

x(0) = x0 = 15 cm, ˙x(0) = 0 cm/s.

Problem 8:

For the system shown to the right, the disk of

mass m rolls without slip and x measures the

displacement of the disk from the unstretched

position of the spring. The surface is inclined

at an angle of φ with respect to vertical.

a) find the equations of motion. Do not

neglect gravity;

b) if the system is underdamped, what is

the frequency of the free vibrations of

this system in terms of the parameters

k, c, and m;

c) for what value of the damping constant

Solution:

a) In addition to x, the displacement of the center of the disk, we identify the coordinates

z and θ, the displacement across the spring and the rotation of the disk respectively.

These additional coordinates are related to x as

z = 2x, x =rθ.

An appropriate free-body diagram is shown to the

right. We note that (ˆı,ˆ ) are related to the direc-

tions (ˆe1,ˆe2) as

Eliminating the coordinates z and θ, we can write the equation of motion in terms of x

as

3m

2 ¨x+c ˙x+ 4k x = mg sinφ.

Since the gravitational force has been included in the development of this equation of

motion, the coordinates are measured with respect to the unstretched position of the

spring.

b) Assuming the system is underdamped, the frequency of the free vibrations is ωd =

, where

ωn =

so that

24km,

c) The system is critically damped when ζ = 1, which corresponds to a damping coefficient

of

ccr = 2

6km.

d) The system is stationary in static equilibrium, so that xx0 = constant—both ˙x and

¨x vanish, and the equation of motion reduces to

4kx0 = mg sinφ.

Solving for x0, the equilibrium displacement is

x0 = mg sinφ
4k .

Problem 9:

In the figure shown to the right, in the ab-

sence of gravity the springs are unstretched

in the equilibrium position.

a) Determine the deflection of each spring

from its unstretched length when the

system shown is in equilibrium.

b) If the system is released from the un-

stretched position of the springs, what

is the maximum angular velocity of the

disk during the resulting motion?

Solution:

a) We define the coordinates x, θ, z1, and z2

as shown in the figure, which are related

as

x =r1θ, z1 = r1θ, z2 =r2θ.

Notice that because of these coordinate

definitions, a rotation with positive θ

gives rise to a negative value in both x

and z2. Likewise, we see that x =z1.

Using the free-body diagram shown to

the right, linear momentum balance on

the block provides

F = mF

(Tmg)ˆ = m ¨x ˆ ,

The equilibrium rotation of the disk thus is found to be

With this, the equilibrium deflection of each spring is found to be

z2,eq =r2θeq = mgr1r2

b) The general free response of the disk can be expressed as

θ(t) = θeq +A sin(ωnt) +B cos(ωnt),

where θeq is given above, A and B are arbitrary constants, and

ωn =

k1r2

1 +k2r2

2

I +mr2

.

The system is released with the initial conditions:

θ(0) = 0, ˙

θ(0) = 0,

so that solving for the arbitrary constants

A = 0, B =θeq.

Therefore the solution is

θ(t) = θeq (1cos(ωnt)) = mgr1

Problem 10: (Spring 2003)

motion;

b) what is the frequency of oscillation of

the system;

c) what value of the damping coefficient b

d) if k = 2 N/m, b = 4 N/(m/s), and m =

Solution:

tion at the left and right ends of the bar.

11

These coordinates are related as:

z1 = ℓ

2 θ, z2 = ℓ

2 θ = z1.

A free-body diagram for this system is

shown to the right. Applying angular mo-

mentum balance on the bar eliminates the

b) A critically damped system occurs when ζ = 1. For this system:

Solving for ccr yields:

ccr =

Problem 12: (Spring 2003)

Find the response of the system shown to the

right if the block is pulled down by 15 cm and

released form rest.

m = 2.0 kg, b = 0.5 N/(m/s),

k1 = 0.5 N/m, k2 = 0.25 N/(m/s).

Therefore, the free-body diagram is shown

to the right. Applying linear momentum

F = m F

keq x+b ˙x

ˆ =m ¨x ˆ ,
which can finally be written as:

m ¨x+b ˙x+keq x = 0.

x = 0, x(0) = 3

With this, the damping ratio and natural frequency are:

ζ =

Therefore, the system is underdamped and the general response can be written as:

Problem 13: (Spring 2003)

In the figure shown to the right, in the ab-

sence of gravity the springs are unstretched

in the equilibrium position.

a) Determine the deflection of each spring

from its unstretched length when the

system shown is in equilibrium.

b) If the system is released from the un-

stretched position of the springs, what

is the maximum angular velocity of the

disk during the resulting motion?

Solution:

a) We define θ, x1, and x2 as indicated in the above figure. In particular, x1 and x2

represent the displacement in their respective springs as measured from their unstretched

position. These coordinates are related through the following transformations:

x1 =r1 θ, x2 =r2 θ.

An appropriate free-body diagram for this

system is shown to the right. Notice that

the gravitational force must be included to

determine the equilibrium deflection in the

system. To eliminate the reaction force on

the disk, angular momentum balance is ap-

plied about the center, yielding:

MG = IG ¨

Finally, eliminating the unknown tension from these equations and using the above

coordinate transformations, this single-degree-of-freedom system can be modeled with

the equation:

IG

+m r2
1

¨

θ +

k1 r2

1 +k2 r2
2

θ = (m g r1).

This equation of motion determines the equilibrium position θeq (with ¨

θeq = 0) to be:

θeq = m g r1
k1 r2

1 +k2 r2

2

.

Therefore, the equilibrium displacements in each spring are:

x1,eq =r1 θeq = m g r2

k1 r2

1 +k2 r2

2

, x2,eq =r2 θeq = m g r1 r2
k1 r2

.

b) Define new coordinates z1 and z2, which measure the displacement in springs 1 and 2

with respect to the static equilibrium position, that is:

z1 = x1x1,eq, z2 = x2x2,eq.

Likewise, let φ represent the angular displacement of the disk from the static equilibrium

position:

φ = θθeq.

14

Therefore, the potential energy of this system can be written as:

V = 1

1 + 1

If the system is released from rest at the unstretched position of the springs, then:

φ(0) =θeq = m g r1
k1 r2

1 +k2 r2
2

, ˙

φ(0) = 0.

At this initial state, the potential and kinetic energies become:

T0 = 0, V0 = (m g r1)2
2(k1 r2

1 +k2 r2

2).

Because this system is conservative, the total energy, E = T +V remains constant.

Therefore, when the kinetic energy is maximal, the potential energy is minimal, that is:

V1 = 0, T1 = 1

Finally, conservation of energy implies that V0 =T1, and solving for ˙

Problem 14: (Spring 2003)

Solution:

a) We define the three coordinates as shown as the figure, related as:

15

A free-body diagram for this system is

shown to the right. Notice that the force in

the upper spring depends on z, rather than

x, while the friction force has an unknown

magnitude f. Because the disk is assumed

to roll without slip, we are unable to specify

the value of f, but instead can relate the dis-

placement and rotation of the disk through

the coordinate relations above.

while the block moves without friction:

a) find the equations of motion for this

Solution:

a) Let x denote the translational displacement of G in the ˆı direction, while θ denotes the

angular displacement of the disk in the ˆ

k direction. If T is the tension between the disk

and the mass and f is the frictional force acting on the disk, the equations of motion

on the disk and the mass are:

(T) ˆı = m¨x ˆı.

In addition, x and θ are related through the kinematic constraint:

x =rθ.

Eliminating (θ,T,f) we obtain a single degree-of-freedom system on x of the form:

5m

b) From the above equation we identify the undamped natural frequency and damping

ratio as:

ωn =

.

Thus, the damped natural frequency is:

ωd = ωn

For the given values of the parameters, this reduces to ωd = 1.264 rad/s.

Problem 17:

We model a nonuniform beam as a single-

degree-of-freedom system in the form:

m¨x+b˙x+kx = 0,

and experimentally measure the mass as m =

termine the equivalent spring constant to be

k = 4 N/m, and we measure the response as

shown.

a) Determine the equivalent damping con-

stant.

b) What is the exponential decay rate of

the transient solution?

x1 = 1.00 m

Problem 18:

The rigid beam (mass m = 2 kg, length l =

1.5 m) is supported by an elastic spring (k =

4 N/m) and damper (b = 2 N/(m/s)), and is

pinned to the ground.

a) Find the linearized equations of motion

in terms of z, the relative displacement

between the end of the beam and the

ground;

b) what is the frequency of the resulting

c) if the mass of the spring is taken to be

mspring = 1 kg, find the new frequency

of the oscillations.

z

(m,l)

Solution:

a) We will define the inclination of the bar from the horizontal position as θ, so that the

angular acceleration is ¨

point of rotation, we find:

mbar l2

3

¨
θ +bl ˙z +kl z = 0.

We assume that the coordinates θ and z are related by z = lsinθ, which for small

rotations reduces to z = lθ. Using this constraint to eliminate θ, the equation of motion

reduces to:

For the parameter values given above, this becomes:

¨z +

For this system, the damping ratio and natural frequency can be expressed as:

c) If the mass of the spring is considered, it is treated as an additional equivalent mass

meq = mspring/3 located at the end of the bar. Therefore the new moment of inertia of

the bar about the point of rotation is:

t2 = 4.00 s,

as shown in the figure, find the equivalent

stiffness and equivalent damping of the beam

(assume that the beam is massless).

Solution:

a) The logarithmic decrement is defined as δ = ln|x2/x1|. In terms of this quantity and

the period of oscillation T, the damping ratio and natural frequency are defined as:

ωn =

Therefore, the stiffness and damping constants reduce to:

b = m 2ζωn = m 2δ

T .

For this system, we find that T = 4 s and δ = 0.223, and the stiffness and damping

constant reduce to:

k = 24.7 N/m,

b = 1.12 N/(m/s).

Problem 20:

For the single-degree-of-freedom mechanical

system shown in the figure:

a) determine the governing equations of

b) what are the damping ratio and un-

damped natural frequency of this sys-

c) find the response of the system x(t)

subject to the initial conditions x(0) =

x0, ˙x(0) = 0,

when m = 1 kg, b = 12 (N·s)/m, and k =

9 N/m. Assume the pulley is massless and

neglect the effects of gravity.

2r

Solution:

a) Let x represent the displacement of mass m in the vertical direction and θ measure the

angular displacement of the pulley, both measured from the static equilibrium position.

If T represents the tension in the cable supporting mass m, then T = kr

2 θ, where θ is
the angular displacement of the massless pulley from static equilibrium. In addition,

we find that θ is related to the linear displacement of mass m as θ = x

2r. As a result, in

the ˆ direction, the equation governing the motion of the mass is:

m¨x+b˙x+ k

4x = 0.

As a result, we find that the the equivalent spring constant is keq = k

In terms of the given parameters, we find ζ = 4.0 and ωn = 3 rad/s. We note that the

b) What is the period of each oscilla-

tion in terms of the system parameters

(m,k,c)?

c) For what value of c is the system criti-

cally damped?

d) If the system is released with the initial

conditions:

x(0) = 0.0 m, ˙x(0) = 5.0 m/s,

find the resulting solution x(t) if m =

2 kg, k = 48 N/m and c = 4 N/(m/s).

x

2 c

Solution:

a) In terms of x, the spring and damping forces can be written as:

Fspring =6k x ˆı, Fdamper =2c ˙x ˆı.

Using linear momentum balance on the block, we find that:

F = (6k x2c ˙x)ˆı = m¨x ˆı = mF

aG,

22

and the equation of motion can be written in standard form as:

¨x+ (2ζωn) ˙x+ (ω2

n) x = 0,

with ωn =

6k
m,

ζ = c

6km
.

b) In terms of ζ and ωn, the period of oscillation is simply T = (2π)/ωd, where ωd =

. Therefore, for this system, the period reduces to:

T =

c
6km

6kmc2

,

provided c2

< 6km.

c) For a critically damped system, ζ = 1, and solving for c, yields:

ccritical =

6km.

d) With these parameter values, the equation of motion reduces to:

¨x+ 4 ˙x+ 144 x = 0,

so that ωn = 12 rad/s, and ζ = 1/6. For these values, the general solution can be

written as:

x(t) = A e−2 t

35 t+φ

,

where A and φ are arbitrary constants used to fit the initial conditions. Solving for A

and φ, we find:

so that the general solution can be written as:

the system is in equilibrium?

Solution:

We assume that the ˆı and ˆ directions are standard orthonormal basis in the horizontal

and vertical directions respectively.

a) The forces due to the springs in parallel and damping are:

Felastic = 3k·xˆ ,

Fdamping = b· ˙xˆ .

With the inclusion of the gravitational force, the equation of motion for this system can

be written:

F = m(¨xˆ ),
3k·xˆ +b· ˙xˆ mgˆ =m¨xˆ .

Taking components in the ˆ direction, we obtain the governing equation of motion:

m¨x+b˙x+ 3kx = mg.

24

b) Dividing through by the mass m, we find:

¨x+ b

so that:

Solution:

a) The displacement of each end of the bar in the ˆ direction is:

For small angular displacements sinθ θ, and the governing equations of motion are

b) This system is undamped. Therefore the frequency of the oscillation is equal to the

undamped natural frequency:

ω = ωn =

c) This system possesses the general solution:

θ(t) = c1 sinωt+c2 cosωt,

which, for the initial conditions given above, yields the solution:

Problem 25:

We obtain the differential equation:

m¨x+b˙x+kx = 0,

as a model for a spring-mass-damper system with:

m = 2, k = 18.

a) Identify the damping constant b that gives rise to critical damping;

b) If, instead, b = 24, approximately how long will it take for the the amplitude of free vibration

to be reduced to within 2% of zero?

Solution:

a) Written in nondimensional form, the equations of motion are:

¨x+ b

m ˙x+ k

mx = 0,

and so we identify the damping ratio and natural frequency as:

ζ = b
2

ωn =

ζ = 1 corresponds to critical damping, so that:

bcritical = 2

km = 12.

b) For b = 24 we find:

Therefore the eigenvalues of this system are:

The dominant eigenvalue is λ =6 + 3

We define the tension in the left and right cable as T1 and T2 respectively. Thus, linear

Problem 31:

In the spring-mass-damper system shown,

the block slides with no friction. With m =

a) Find the resulting solution if the sys-

tem is released from the unstretched

position with initial velocity ˙x(0) =

b) Identify the damping constant b that

gives rise to critical damping;

Solution:

For this system the differential equation of motion can be written as:

m¨x+b˙x+kx = 0,

¨x+ b

m ˙x+ k

mx = 0,

subject to specified initial conditions.

a) With the given values for the mass, stiffness, and damping coefficient, the above equation

becomes:

¨x+ (6.5 kg/s)˙x+ (9 kg/s2

)x = 0,

whose characteristic equation reduces to:

λ2

+ 13

2 λ+ 9 = 0,

which has two real solutions of the form:

λ =13±5
4 .

Thus the system has two purely real eigenvalues and the resulting system is overdamped

and decays exponentially with no sustained oscillations. The general solution is given

as:

x(t) = c1 e−9

2t

+c2 e−2t
.

For the initial conditions x(0) = 0 m, ˙x(0) = 10.0 m/s, we find that:

c1 = 4 m, c2 =4 m,

and the general solution to this equation, subject to these initial conditions, becomes:

x(t) =

4 m

e−(9/2 s1

)t

e−(2 s1

.

b) For this system, the damping ratio is:

30

Thus, for a critically damped system ζ = 1, and solving for b with m = 2 kg and

k = 18 N/m, we find:

bcr = 12 (N·s)/m.

Problem 32:

a) Find the equations of motion for this

system assuming that the disk rolls

Solution:

We define θ as the angular displacement of the disk in the ˆ

k direction as measured

from the equilibrium position of the disk (when the spring is unstretched). Assuming

that the disk rolls without slip, the rotation and translation of the disk can be related

through the constraint equation:

x =rθ.

a) The frictional force, which is unknown, is defined as f = fˆı, while the forces due to the

spring and damper are:

Fspring =kx ˆı, Fdamper =b˙x ˆı.

Using linear and angular momentum balance on the disk, we find that:

F = (fkxb˙x)ˆı = m¨x ˆı = mF

aG,

MG = (fr) ˆ

k = mr2

¨
θ ˆ

k = IG αβ/FF.

Eliminating the unknown frictional force, and using the kinematic constraint, we find

the equation of motion is:

3m
2

¨x+b˙x+kx = 0.

b) We can write this differential equation in standard form, that is:

¨x+ (2ζωn)˙x+ (ω2

n)x = 0,

with ωn =

2k
3m,

ζ = b

6km
.

31

If the system is critically damped, then this implies that the damping ratio is unity.

Therefore, solving for b when ζ = 1, we find:

bcritical =

6km.

c) When the system is critically damped, the general solution takes the form:

x(t) =

c1 +c2 t

e−ωn t
,

while this can be differentiated with respect to time to obtain the velocity:

˙x(t) =

(c2ωnc1)(ωnc2) t

e−ωn t
.

If the system is released from rest when a known initial displacement, then the initial

conditions are (x(0), ˙x) = (x0,0). Thus, returning these to the general solution, we find:

x0 = x(0) = c1,

0 = ˙x(0) = c2ωnc1.

Solving for c1 and c2, the solution to these initial conditions becomes:

x(t) = x0

1 +ωn t

e−ωn t

where recall that ωn =

(2k)/(3m).
