Please help me get this, it's due tonigh tonight on webassign. The question is: A 3.30 m long pole is balanced vertically on its tip. It is given a tiny push. What will be the speed of the upper end of the pole just before it hits the ground? Assume the lower end does not slip. I know to use MgH = 1/2 MV^2 + 1/2 Iw^2 but when you plug in for w, what do you use? w is rotational velocity and you have to know the time frame, and it doesn't give you that. how do you do this problem??
