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}.
