## Homework Statement

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?

## Homework Equations

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.
