# Mathematica Graphs

## Definition of the seven variables

### l1, l2, l3, l4, m1, m2, mb

## Two Representations of the Configuration with time

### The red and blue dots show where the projectile and counterweights are upon release for maximum range

## Energy Analysis

### How is the energy partitioned between the cw, projectile, and beam?

## Behavior of the 3 angles

### Vertical lines are where the projectile leaves the slide and when it leaves the sling

### All of the above were for parameters {l,m}={1, 4, 3.25, 1, 100,1, 5}

and initial conditions {ths, phis, psis}={135, 45, 45}.
