Question

Problem 2 (5 points) A washing machine is modeled as shown in the figure. A bundle of wet clothes forms amass of 10 kg (mb) in the machine and causes a rotating unbalance. The moving mass is 20 kg(including mb) and the diameter of the washer basket(2e) is 50 cm. Knowing that the spin cycle rotates at 300 rpm. 1- Let k=1000 N/m and 3=0.01. Calculate the force transmitted to the frame of the washing machine. 2- Redesign the isolation system (i.e., select k and c values) so that the force transmitted to the side is less than 100N.
