Attwood's machine A uniform circular pulley of mass 2m can rotate treely about Its axis 12.2 of symmetry which is fixed in a horizontal position. Two masses m, 3m are connected by light inextensible string which passes over the pulley without slipping. The whole system undergoes a planar motion with the masses moving vertically. Take the rotation angle of the pulley as generalised coordinate and obtain Lagrange's equation for the motion. Deduce the upward acceleration of the mass m. 362 12.5 A uniform solid cylinder cylinder of radius b. between the the two C with mass m and In radius the motion, a rolls the on axes the rough of outer cylinders surface of remain a fixed parallel horizontal to each upward other. vertical.

The whole system undergoes planar motion. How many degrees of freedom has this system? Obtain Lagrange's equations. For the special case in which M = 3m/2, find (i) the acceleration of the wedge, and (ii) the acceleration of the ball relative to the wedge.
