Good Night everyone:
I have one problem here that I KNOW how to solve using Lagragian Dynamics. But, I really want to know how to solve using Vector decomposition, Newton's Laws, first-year physics and so on..... I really apreciate tips and hints, both mathematical and physical. I DON'T WANT A SOLUTION OR STEP-BY-STEP.
(*) The "motivation" for my question is that we often hear that Lagrangian Dynamics is more General and powerful than Newton's Approach. It's true. But, I want to see for myself that it's true. On this particular problem, which is more difficult than basic Newtonian problems, the solution is hard (?) but still "possible".
