A rod of mass M and length L can rotate about a hinge at its left end and is initially at rest. A putty ball of mass m, moving with speed V, strikes the rod at angle θ from the normal and sticks to the rod after the collision. What is the angular speed ωf of the system immediately after the collision, in terms of system parameters and I
