Uniform rod rotates at axel. What is the total kinetic energy of the rod?
deltaKrot = 1/2Iw^2
deltaKtrans = 1/2mv^2
The Attempt at a Solution
I believe the rod has both rotational as well as translation energy because the rod is not rotating about its center of mass. I end up getting 1/2ML^2w^2+1/2Mv^2 which is not the answer choices. (The answer is B).
