A broom handle has a length of 1.67m and a mass of 580g with the axis rotation through the center. (what is this problem asking me to do?)

    It may have asked for the moment of inertia, I. In this case it would be
    (1/12)(0.58 kg)*(1.67 m)^2

    The moment of inertia measured the intertial resistance to rotation, and the energy associated with rotary motion.
