Question

A thin, uniform rod is hinged at its midpoint. To begin with, one-half of the rod is bent upward and is perpendicular to the other half. This bent object is rotating at an angular velocity of 4.7 rad/s about an axis that is perpendicular to the left end of the rod and parallel to the rod's upward half (see the drawing). Without the aid of external torques, the rod suddenly assumes its straight shape. What is the angular velocity of the straight rod?

Answer #1

**initial I = (m/2)L²/3 + (m/2)L²
where L = ½ the length of the rod, and the vertical half can be
treated as a point mass.
initial I**

**intial momentum Pi = final momentum Pf**

**I _{1}_{1}
= I_{2}*_{2}**

[2mL²/3 ]*4.7 rad/s = [ 4mL²/3 ]*_{2}

_{2}
= 4.7 / 2 = 2.35 rad/s

A uniform rod of mass 190 g and length 100 cm is free to rotate
in a horizontal plane around a fixed vertical axis through its
center, perpendicular to its length. Two small beads, each of mass
18 g, are mounted in grooves along the rod. Initially, the two
beads are held by catches on opposite sides of the rod's center, 18
cm from the axis of rotation. With the beads in this position, the
rod is rotating with an...

A thin uniform rod has a length of 0.490 m and is rotating in a
circle on a frictionless table. The axis of rotation is
perpendicular to the length of the rod at one end and is
stationary. The rod has an angular velocity of 0.37 rad/s and a
moment of inertia about the axis of 3.50×10−3 kg⋅m2 . A
bug initially standing on the rod at the axis of rotation decides
to crawl out to the other end of...
