## Homework Statement

<Q>A rod of length L is pivoted at one end and is rotated with a uniform angular velocity in a horizontal plane. Let T1 and T2 be the tensions at the points L/4 and 3L/4 away from the pivoted ends respectively.

<a> T1>T2 <b> T1<T2 <c> T1=T2 <d> The relation b/w T1 and T2 depends on whether the rod rotated anticlockwise or clockwise

## Homework Equations

For a pt mass "m" moving in a uniform circle. F

_{centripetal}= mv

^{2}/r

## The Attempt at a Solution

Hmm shouldn't the tension across the whole rod should be same and thus T1 =T2 .

But the answer is T1>T2

Need little guidance ^.^
