 Homework Statement
 At this point both point A and block B are moving in parallel, as well as the question stating angular velocity is 0, my assumption was due to both ends moving in same direction parallel that the rod is not rotating at this instance and the answer is a. angular acceleration = 0. This does not line up with the answer key and I'm at a loss at this point. Answer Key is b. Am I misinterpreting the question?
 Homework Equations
 Angular Acceleration = r*sqr(angular velocity)
Both point A and B are moving in parallel in same direction, therefore rod is not rotating at this instance and angular acceleration is 0. Question states angular velocity is equal to zero.
Plugging into Angular Acceleration"AB" = r*sqr(angular velocity"AB") = 0.26m* sqr(0) = 0
