**Kayrie**, Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 8:13pmUse the rotational energy equation, E = 0.5Iω˛, where I is the moment of inertia for a long thin rod with an axis through it's midpoint (I = (1/12)mL˛).

E = 0.5Iω˛

E = 0.5 [1/12)mL˛] ω˛

E = (1/24) mL˛ ω˛

Find ω by multiplying the rpm by 2π and then dividing by 60 to put units into rad/sec (or multiply ω by π/30)

3450 * 2π = 21 676.9... rad/min

(21 676.9... rad/min)/60 = 361.28... rad/sec

Insert into energy eqn and solve

E = (1/24) mL˛ (361.28...rad/s)˛

E = (1/24)(0.65kg)(0.55m˛)(361.28...rad/s)˛

E = ~1069 J
