Step 1

Given information:

Length of the rod (l) = 0.480 m

Initial angular velocity of the rod (ω1) = 0.42 rad/s

Initial moment of inertia of the rod (I1) = 3.30 × 10-3 kg.m2

The tangential of the ant when it reaches the other end is (v) = 0.110 m/s

Step 2

If the ant sits on the other end and has a tangential velocity (v) the...
