1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Uniform rod rotates at axel. What is the total kinetic energy of the rod? 2. Relevant equations deltaKrot = 1/2Iw^2 deltaKtrans = 1/2mv^2 3. 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).
