    Lagrangian equation of motion.

    Can someone please help me with this,

    so far i have

     x_{P} = 0

     Z_{P} = ct^{\beta}

     x_{m} = l sin\theta

     Z_{m} = lcos\theta

    However when I do the time derivatives I dont get the above answer. so my coordinates must be wrong? Can anyone suggest an alternative or see where I have gone wrong.
