In Problem 3, is theta the angle from the vertical line above the base of the arm to the position of the arm as shown in the picture?

Sorry for the wording. I’m not really sure how to describe what I’m talking about, so here’s a picture: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21010350/problem3.JPG

It also says “.50lb particle” and that “h=.5m” - should we convert the values to pounds and feet or kg and m, or is there an error in the problem?

Hi Dylan, the angle theta does refer to the angle denoted by the arc (as shown in your figure). Also, please change kilograms into pounds. I have uploaded a corrected version of the assignment, and thanks for catching these...
