  1. Dec 27, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    There is a m1 = m mass and 2 rods with mass m as drowed on the file below. The speed of the system immediately after F impact is being asked.

    2. Relevant equations

    Included in the doc file.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have tried to solve the problem by myself and my solution is also included in the file above. I have found a strange result. If you see and say any mistakes of my solution I will be glad.
