1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A chimney (length L = 82.6 m, mass M = 2280 kg) cracks at the base, and topples. Assume: - the chimney behaves like a thin rod, and it does not break apart as it falls - only gravity (no friction) acts on the chimney as if falls - the bottom of the chimney tilts but does not move left or right Find vtop, the linear speed of a point on the top of the chimney just as it hits the ground. 2. Relevant equations →Conservation of energy →KE = ½Iω²? →v = ωr? 3. The attempt at a solution What if I tried this method? mgL = ½ * 1/3 * mL² * ω² ω = √(6g/L) Then... v = √(6g/L) * L But the whole answer is wrong.
