Hi, I just have a quick question I hope I can explain well. Suppose you have a metal rod that you apply a force to for a brief moment at the center of mass. It won't rotate and it will move forward at velocity V. Now you reset the scene and move the the force so it's applied off center off the mass, it will then also provide angular velocity. I'm guessing the rod's linear velocity would now be less, since some of the energy has gone into the rotation. Am I right? and if this is true, how do you go about working out the angular and linear components?
