A thin uniform rod is rotating at an angular velocity of 7.70 rad/s about an axis that is perpendicular to the rod at its center. As the figure indicates, the rod is hinged at two places, onequarter of the length from each end. Without the aid of external torques, the rod suddenly assumes a "u" shape, with the arms of the "u" parallel to the rotation axis. What is the angular velocity of the rotating "u"?
