A uniform thin rod of length 0.3m and mass 3.5kg can rotate in a horizontal plane about a vertical axis through its center. The rod is at rest when a 3g bullet traveling in the horizontal plane of the rod is fired into one end of the rod. As viewed from above, the direction of the bullet's velocity makes an angle of 60 degrees with the rod. If the bullet lodges in the rod and the angular velocity of the rod is 9 rad/s immediately after the collision, what is the magnitude of the bullet's velocity just before impact?
