A Rod toppling: Find reaction force as function of theta

  1. Dec 19, 2016 #1
    Rod of length a and mass m topples from theta = 0. The lower point is fixed. Calculate the reaction force f as a function of theta. What are the maximal/minimal values of f for theta between 0 and 180deg.

    Any suggestions?
