The carriage weighs 64.4 lb and moves with negligible friction along the horizontal rail. A sinusoidal force F = 10 sin πt in pounds measured positive to the left acts on the carriage as shown. If the carriage has a velocity of 5 ft/sec to the right at t = 0, determine the velocity v1 of the' carriage when t = 1sec. By inspection, what is the velocity v2 of the carriage when t = 2 sec?
The question belongs to Mechanical Engineering and the question is about a carriage moving with no friction on a horizontal rail. If the sinusoidal force F = 10 sin πt in pounds measured positive to the left acts on the carriage. The velocity of the carriage has to be calculated. The calculation has been given in the solution in detail.
