Re: Can someone tell me why NDsolve isn't working here?

I didn't know that Mathematica couldn't deal with systems of
differential equations which included algebraic equations too (aren't
algebraic equations a particular case of differential equations?).
I've checked wolfram.com and it does say that Mathematica 5 can solve
some DAEs, I think I will download the trial version and try it.

Yes, it's a two-body dynamic system and energy conservation is
important. In fact, to get an answer to the problem with generic mass
(M), length (L) and radius (R), I think I'll have to solve it using
energy consevation (but then I won't get the answer for a generic time
(t)).
