1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The uniform slender bar is pivoted at and swings freely in the vertical plane. If the bar is released from rest in the horizontal position, calculate the initial value of the force exerted by the bearing on the bar an instant after release.
I have attached an image of the question
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
I'm honestly not sure how to start this question. I'm pretty sure that this is a straightforward question
I think I may need to use the equation:
ƩM_{O} = I_{G}α + ma_{G}d
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you
