1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A thin uniform pole of length 30 m is pivoted at the bottom end. Calculate the most probable point of rupture on the pole as the pole falls. 2. Relevant equations I'm really not sure how to start. 3. The attempt at a solution None, our professor gave us this as a challenge problem and I don't believe it is something I should know taking general physics. Clarification on even where to start would be nice.
