A steel rod 1 meter long and having a mass of 2kg is pinned at one of its ends. A force is applied perpendicularly to the rod at a distance of 75 cm from the pinned end. What is the magnitude of the resulting angular acceleration of the rod?
Irod=2kgm2

Step 1

Given values in the question:

Length of the steel rod, l = 1 m

Mass of the steel rod, m = 2 kg

Distance at which force is applied, r = 0.75 m

The expression for the moment of inertia I of the rod about one of the end is

Step 2

Consider the applied force as F.

The expression for the torque is,

Step 3

Angle between r and F is 90&d...
