Grahic Jump Location
A hanging chain of discrete links. (a) The coordinate system and (b) the free body diagram of the jth link. Counterclockwise displacement angles are taken positive.
Grahic Jump Location
A plot of frequency ratio; i.e., the natural frequency of a chain with rotational inertia divided by that of a hanging cable, versus the radius of gyration, k, for the first three modes of vibration. L=2 m and g=9.8 ms−2 .
