The assembly shown in the figure below consists of a thin rod of length

ℓ = 23.2 cm

and mass

m = 1.20 kg

with a solid sphere of diameter

d = 10.0 cm

and mass

M = 2.00 kg

attached to its top. The assembly is free to pivot about a frictionless axle through the bottom of the rod. The assembly is initially vertical and at rest when it starts to rotate clockwise.

A thin rod of length ℓ and mass m is upright with a sphere of diameter dand mass M attached to the rod at the bottom of the sphere. A pivot is at the bottom of the rod and the rod-sphere system rotates in a clockwise direction.

(a)

After the combination rotates through 90 degrees, what is its rotational kinetic energy (in J)?

J

(b)

What is the angular speed (in rad/s) of the rod and sphere?

(c)

What is the linear speed (in m/s) of the center of mass of the sphere?

m/s

(d)

How does it compare with the speed had the sphere fallen freely through the same distance of 28.2 cm? (Express your answer as a percentage.)

vswing is  ---Select--- greater than less than vfall by  %.  I hope you understood the problem and got your answers, If yes rate me!! or else comment for a better solutions.
