The system shown in Fig. P2.57 has two rigid uniform beams of length I and mass per unit length m, hinged at the middle and resting on rollers at the test stand. The hinge is restrained from rotation by a torsional spring K and supports a mass M held up by another spring k to a position where the bars are horizontal. Determine the equation of motion using virtual work.
