## Homework Statement

A tall, cylindrical chimney falls over when its base is ruptured. Assuming that the chimney remains intact before it hits the ground, using conservation of energy, calculate its angular speed [tex]\dot \theta{}[/tex] as a function of [tex]\theta[/tex] , the angle which the chimney makes with the vertical.

## Homework Equations

Etotal = Ep+Ek

I posted a question yesterday similar to this one. I really do not understand how to tackle this type of question. Any help would be appreciated.
