Tilting stick

  1. Dec 15, 2016 #1
    Hallo,

    I Wonder how i can get the equation of motion for a tilting Stick of mass M and lengh L with an additional mass m placed in it in distance of l from the Center of rotation.

    I thought about the moments of inertia

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks in advance
