A 3 kg mass and a 4 kg mass are attached to either end of a 3 m long massless rod. If the system is rotated about the center of mass by a force of 7 N acting on the 4 kg mass, (perpendicular to the rod), what will the size of the angular acceleration of the system be?
I used angular acceleration = rF/mr^2, and got 1.3608 rad/s^2, but got the answer wrong. Anyone have any idea why?
