I need the solution for the question attached. Thanks help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose25. An 8.0-m massless rod is loosely pinned to a frictionless pivot at 0, as shown in the figure. A very small 4.0-kg ball is attached to the other end of the rod. The ball is held at A, where the rod makes a 30° angle above the horizontal, and is released. The ball-rod assembly then swings freely with negligible friction in a vertical circle between A and B. (a) Find the radial acceleration as the ball passes through point D.
