A uniform thin rod of length L and mass M is free

to rotate on a frictionless pin passing through one end

(Fig. P8.47). The rod is released from rest in the horizontal

position. (a) What is the speed of its center of gravity when

the rod reaches its lowest position? (b) What is the tangential

speed of the lowest point on the rod when it is in the

vertical position?

Step 1

**Given:**

Length of rod = L

Mass of rod = M

Step 2

Calculating the speed of its centre of gravity when the rod reaches its lowest position:

Step 3

Calculating the speed of its centre of gravit...
