Errata: In Exercise 2.7, reference to inverted pendulum may be confusing

The end of Exercise 2.7 refers to the dynamics of the inverted pendulum. A better phrasing is
Show that the dynamics of the electric generator have a normalized form that is similar to the dynamics of a pendulum with forcing at the pivot.
This is equivalent to the dynamics of the inverted pendulum near the angle .
