# What is Rod: Definition and 1000 Discussions

Röd (Swedish for Red) is the eighth studio album by Swedish alternative rock band Kent. It was released as digital download exclusively through the band's website on 5 November 2009 and physically on 6 November 2009. The first single from the album, "Töntarna", was released as digital download on 5 October 2009.
Röd is available in a standard edition and a deluxe edition box. The deluxe edition box version features the 11-track CD, a USB flash drive with high quality MP3 files as well as AIFF files, three 10" records which between them contain the whole album, and a 118-page book containing lyrics, abstract pictures and photographs. Due to distribution difficulties the deluxe edition was delayed until 11 November 2009.

1. ### B Force Profile of a Hinged Rod on the Ground

A rod of length 'L' is hinged at one of its ends and is lying on the ground. A torque 'T' is applied to it at the hinge such that it pushes the rod into the ground. What will be the force profile on the ground since the entire length of the rod touches the ground? Assume the rod is weightless.
2. ### Moment of force, rod with mass

OA*P_A = OH*P + OB*P_B ⇔ OA*P_A = ¾*OA*P + 2OA*P_B ⇔ 5*10 = ¾*0.4*10 + 2*P_B →P_B=23.5 →m2=2.35 (kg) My result doesn't match the answer hint, and when I change the rod's centre of mass to OH=1, it fits the answer hint. How do I determine the centre of mass in this situation?
3. ### Why is there are precession frequency here?

so I need to use the eq.: omega_pr = ##mgr / L_s## with r = 6cm. But from how I imagine/see it, the rod pierces the disk through the middle so how does this create precession if the weight will not cause a torque then and thus a hortizontal change in angular momentum? Thanks in advance!
4. ### Wrong moment of inertia?

so calculated, the moment of inertia for a rod about an axis at the end of the rod is I = 1/3 * M * L^2 here for case 1: arms to the side I is calculated to be ##I = 0.224## for case 2: arms stretched ## I = 1 / 3 * M * L^2 + M * d^2 ## with L = 0.6 m (length of rod) and d = 0.2 (dinstance from...
5. ### Why Won't a Disk Rotate on a Frictionless Bearing?

6. ### Tension in Rope Wrapped Around a Rod

On question B, I've attempted a solution that I have posted. However, I don't think it's correct. Am I allowed to treat this rope that wraps around the rod as a "negative" force and simply attach it to the other side of the equation such that ## m_1g=m_2g+\mu_sN##?

30. ### B Will a round-headed rod topple if it slides down a frictionless slope?

Well, the problem is that, someone told me that a ball won't roll when sliding down a frictionless slope because the resultant force mgsinx is parallel to the slope which means that the ball will slide down the slope. Now, replace the ball with a round headed rod, does this means that the rod...
