A stick of uniform density with mass M = 7.6 kg and length L = 0.8 m is pivoted about an axle which is perpendicular to its length and located 0.13 m from one end. Ignore any friction between the stick and the axle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a) What is the moment of inertia of the stick about this axle?

Iaxle = kg m2

1.621333 NO

HELP: Use the parallel-axis theorem.

i.e Icom + Mh2, how to apply that here.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The stick is held horizontal and then released.

b) What is its angular speed as it passes through the vertical

w = rad/s

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

c) What is its angular acceleration as it passes through the vertical position?

a = rad/s2

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

d) What is the magnitude of the vertical component of the force exerted by the stick on the axle when the stick passes through the vertical?

|Fvertical| = N

Somebody help me with all these parts!!!
