Derive Lagrange’s equation of motion for the rolling cylinder.
Derive Lagrange’s equation of motion for the rolling cylinder. A homogeneous circular cylindrical segment of radius R, length L, height h, and mass m perform s rocking oscillations without slipping on a rough horizontal surface. The center of mass is at r from the center O. The segment is released from rest at the placement 9(0) = 90
