• How can I calculate the impact of moving lever at constant velocity motion with mass at rest with spring and damper in point of contact?

    I have a lever and it is rotating at 10 deg / sec. When the lever is at -20 degree from horizontal, a mass(at rest) of 10 kg is attached on rotating lever. There is a spring of known spring constant and frictional dam...
