A stick of mass M, length L, stands upright on a table, pivoted to the table.
What is the angular velocity as it hits the table?
ang. accel = (3g/2L)cos theta
w = (3g/2L) integral cos theta dt
The Attempt at a Solution
theta (t) = ?
Solution involves elliptic integrals?? Not familiar with numeric methods.
Any approximation of the velocity at the table would be good for now.
