Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Saturday, December 24, 2011 at 8:02pm.

A long thin rod of mass M = 2:00 kg and length L = 75:0 cm is free to rotate about its
center as shown. Two identical masses (each of mass m = .403 kg) slide
without friction along the rod. The two masses begin at the rod's point of rotation when
the rod is rotating at 10.0 rad/s.
(a) When they have moved halfway to the end of the rod, how fast (rad/s) is the rod
rotating?
(b) When the masses are halfway to the end of the rod, what is the ratio of the nal
kinetic energy to the initial kinetic energy (Kf=Ki)?
(c) When they reach the end, how fast is the rod rotating (rad/s)?
