Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 4:00am.

A 1.4-m-long massless rod is pivoted at one end and swings around in a circle on a frictionless table. A block with a hole through the center can slide in and out along the rod. Initially, a small piece of wax holds the block 20 from the pivot. The block is spun at 50 , then the temperature of the rod is slowly increased. When the wax melts, the block slides out to the end of the rod. What is the final angular velocity?
