So my engineering mechanics book includes a brief discussion on area moments of inertia. Unfortunately, the ensuing chapter is predominately computational in nature. I don't have a thorough grasp of ...
Say you have a sphere, and you have several torque vectors acting on it, all at different points. Say you have the vector (6i + 3j + 5k) originating from point A, and the vector (3i + 1j + 9k) ...
A cylinder of mass M and radius R is in static equilibrium as shown in the diagram. The cylinder rests on an inclined plane making an angle with the horizontal and is held by a horizontal string ...
I'm currently stumped by the following situation. Say we've got a rectangular physical pendulum (think ruler with a hole-punch at one end). It's trivial to analyze the motion of the pendulum with the ...
