Question details

Problem 2: Car antenna Consider a car antenna mounted on the hood of a car. The car is moving at an acceleration a(t). The antenna is basically an elastic rod with a mass on top. Assume that the mass is m and the elastic rod has constant cross section A, length L uniform density ρ and elastic modulus E. E.p. A, L a(t) Derive the model system for the car antenna. This includes Write down for the degrees of freedom Figure out the components of the model system (including all the constants-springs and/or dampers)
Identify the external forces Draw the free body diagram, and write the equation of motion.
