A long, thin rod is clamped at its lower end and a mass M is attached to its upper end. The coordinates (x,y) of any point on it satisfy the equation.
where E, I and a are constants. Given that x = 0 when y = 0 and x = a when y = L show that
Hint (z = a - x)
A relation is proven. The solution is detailed and well-presented.
