A uniform disk turns at 3.7rev/s around a frictionless spindle. A nonrotating rod, of the same mass as the disk and length equal to the disk's diameter, is dropped onto the freely spinning disk. they then turn together around the spindle with their centers superposed. What is the angular frequency in rev/s of the combination.[/b]

2. Relevant equations

This is the question I have. I'm not really sure on how to start the problem or what equation to use. Im thinking it may have to do with w=2(pi)f, where w is the angular frequency and f is the frequency, but I'm not quite sure. Any help on how to start the actual problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
