i was solving thsi problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and attempted it in this manner

consider a length [tex]dx[/tex] of the rod at a distance [tex]x[/tex] from the pivot now

let [tex]\theta[/tex] be the required angle

[tex]dx\cos\theta = dm g[/tex]

[tex]dx\sin\theta = m\omega^{2}x\sin\theta[/tex]

dividing we get [tex]\tan\theta = \frac {\omega^{2}x\sin\theta}{g}[/tex] which is obviously false
