Question: pendulum impact energy calculation ldeally the entire pendulum mass of...

Question details

Pendulum Impact Energy Calculation ldeally, the entire pendulum mass of 5kg is at the end of a 1 meter pendulum where the weight of the rod/cable is negligible and delivers an impact of 1ONm when pulled back to an angle 0. mgh-5(9.8)(1-cose) -10 therefore 0-37.2579 degrees In reality, the rod carries significant mass that isnt at the end of the 1m pendulum. Calculate the drawback distance θ necessary to achieve the same 10Nm impact by separating the contributions of the impact head from the rod based on the weights provided below. Assume the mass of the rod is uniform along its length Weight of Impact Head 4.427kg Weight of Pendulum Rod 0.673kg Length of Pendulum 1m
