# Falling physical pendulum

## Homework Statement

A stick of mass M, length L is standing upright on a table, pivoted at the bottom.
What is its angular velocity as it hits the table?

## Homework Equations

ang. accel = (3g/2L)cos theta (theta is zero with stick laying on table)

## The Attempt at a Solution

ang. vel = integral of ang. accel wrt to time, theta is some function of time.
Elliptic integral???

Numeric solution??

Thanks.
