Assume that the object is a rectangle and that the center of mass is located in the center of an object of length 20 and height 2. It's mass is 50(kg if you want). If the object falls onto the tip of a triangle located at a horizontal offset of 3 from the center of mass, how do I find the angular velocity and how would the angular velocity change if I moved the point of collision?

The main thing I am looking for is to understand the application of any formulas there are, as well as why they work the way they do. Sorry if this question is a bit weird, but I could use any help at all really. Thanks.
