I'd be grateful if someone could help me with the problem below:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A free-floating uniform cube with sides of length 2 is at rest,

aligned with the coordinate axes, when it is subjected to an

impulse along one edge of 3m, where m is its mass. What

is the effect on its motion? (Its inertia tensor is 2/3mI)

Do I calculate the angular velocity or what? And how?

Thanks for any help.
