Resolved questions
I have a question. What does 'neglect' mean in this paragraph?

This is clear from Figure 3.6b in the case when the friction forces in the sliding
joint are neglected. The constraint forces are determined by Equations 3.11 and 3.12.

    They have not calculated this force of friction.
    They have chosen to ignore this to simplify the problem.
    Some neglect grammar for the sake of communication. It can be very useful to neglect certain things to get a particular aim.
    If you neglect the frictional force, you will find the ball rolls on the flat surface forever.
    Ice is so slippery, that we can totally neglect the friction in solving the kinematics of skating.
