How much work must be done to accelerate a baton from rest to an angular speed of 7.27 rad/s about its center? Consider the baton to be a uniform rod of length 0.529 m and mass 0.478 kg

  • Physics please help!! -

    The moment of inertia of a uniform rod, about a line through the center and perpendicular to the rod, is
    I = M L^2/12

    The kinetic energy of the rotating rod is (I/2)* w^2

    w = 7.27 rad/s L = 0.529 m
    M = 0.478 kg

    Calculate that kinetic energy. It equals the work required.
