The mass m1 on a smooth table is connected to the
mass m2 which moves only in the vertical direction by an
inextensible L-length rope passing through a hole in the table.
Answer the following by ignoring the friction in the system.

b) Find the conservative values of the system.
c) Obtain the equations of motion of the system and discuss what these equations mean.
d) Solve the Lagrange equations. Assume that the masses do not pass through the hole.
