Combined rotational and translational kinetic energy
How would I determine the total kinetic energy of a long thin rod which is connected at one end to an axis and which rotates around this axis with a constant angular velocity, and the axis moves with a constant translational velocity? I am not sure how to go about this with this unsymmetric situation.

Calculate the rotational energy about its center of mass, then use the Parallel Axis Theorem.
