## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Conserving angular momentum about the point of rotation,

mv

_{o}lcosϑ = ml

^{2}w/3 + mVl/2

Since collision is perfectly elastic, kinetic energy is conserved.

mv

_{o}

^{2}/2 = (ml

^{2}w/3 + mV

^{2})/2

Solving both I got a quadratic equation in w. Please tell if there is something wrong.
