Mathematical Modelling of a Controlled Cart on a Horizontal Pivoting Beam

Use Newtons Law to derive equations of motion for the system. This should be converted into transfer functions for input into MATLAB/SIMULINK. The system consists of a motorised trolley on a see-saw (see attached figure). The trolley motor is to be controlled and eventually the trolley must balance the beam. A potentiometer s

Mechanics problem - rolling

A uniform rigid disk of radius r and mass m rolls without slipping on a smooth horizontal surface. A constant force of magnitude P is applied to the rim of the disk at distance r above the horizontal surface and in the direction of motion. r,m,P are known. what is the angular acceleration in terms of known quantities, and wha
