Chapter 3, Problem 3/119 The two springs, each of stiffness k = 1.24 kN/m, are of equal length and undeformed when 0 = 0. If the mechanism is released from rest in the position 0 = 35°, determine its angular velocity O when 0 = 0. The mass m of each sphere is 4.0 kg. Treat the spheres as particles and neglect the masses of the light rods and springs. m 0.29 m Answer: 0 = rad/s The number of significant digits is set to 3; the tolerance is +/-1 in the 3rd significant digit
