For questions 8-10:

The 1200-mm uniform slender bar ABC, with mass center at B, has a mass of 20 kg. The bar was at
rest in the vertical position when θ was essentially zero. It starts to move from rest by slightly pushing
end A to the left. The roller attached to B is confined to move in the smooth vertical guide while roller
at end A moves in the smooth horizontal guide. Bar ABC will eventually compress the spring as the
bar falls. The spring has a stiffness k = 5000 N/m.

a. Translation
b. Centroidal Rotation
c. Noncentroidal Rotation
d. Constrained Plane Motion

Hint: Use Instant Center Method.

d. vB = 0.520ω


1. A square block of mass m is falling with a velocity v1 when it strikes a small obstruction at B. Knowing that
the coefficient of restitution for the impact between corner A and the obstruction B is e=0.5, determine
immediately after the impact (a) the angular velocity of the block, (b) the velocity of its mass center G.

2. Determine the velocity of each block 2 s after the blocks are released from rest.
Neglect the mass of the pulleys and cord.

3. The plank CDE has a mass of 15 kg and rests on a small pivot at D. The 55-kg gymnast A is standing on the plank at C when the 70-kg
gymnast B jumps from a height of 2.5 m and strikes the plank at E. Assuming plastic impact and that gymnast A is standing absolutely
straight, determine the height to which gymnast A will rise.
