**1. The problem statement**

Hey everyone, I'm a new member here... I'd be grateful if you attempt to solve my following question:

A slender rod of length l is pivoted about a point C located at a distance b from its center G. It's released from rest in a horizontal position and swings freely. Determine (a) the distance b for which the angular velocity of the rod as it passes through a vertical position is maximum, (b) the corresponding values of its angular velocity and of the reaction at C.

## Homework Equations

KE = T = 1/2 m V2

PE = V = m g h
