    According to the rules, you have to show, how much you know about the problem. Show some initial steps.

    D'oh! And I am doing your homework why??

    There are a couple of issues.

    Why a wall?
    What is the gravity constant in this scenario?
    What is the friction of the hinge?
    What is the initial angle B at which the mechanism is released?

    Just a few initial questions.
