We consider a bar rotating, with friction due to viscosity, around a point where a torque is applied. The non-linear dynamic equation of the system is given by ml²ö = -mgl sin 0 – kl²ė + C where 8 - is the angle between the bar and the vertical axis; C- is the torque (C>0); k – is a viscous friction constant; l- is the length of the bar; m – is the mass of the bar; a) Choose appropriate state variables and write down the state equations; b) Find all equilibria of the system, assuming that < 1; c) Linearize the system around equilibrium points and determine the eigenvalues for each equlibria; mgl
3. A pump discharges 126 liters per second of brine ( The pump inlet, 304.8 mm diameter, is at the same level as the outlet, 203.2 mm in diameter. At the inlet, the vacuum is 152.4 mm Hg. The center of the pressure gauge connected to the pump discharge flange is 122 cm. The gauge reads 138 KPag. For a pump efficiency of 83%, what is the power output of the motor? 122 cm. PUMP
