A uniform horizontal rod of mass M and length l rotates with angular velocity w (omega) about a vertical axis through its center. Attached to each end of the rod is a small mass m. Determine the angular momentum of the system about the axis. Write you're answer in terms of M, m, l and w (omega).

The moment of inertia of the rod with the two masses at each end is:
I = M*L^2/12 + 2*m*(L/2)^2
= M*L^2/12 + m*L^2/2
= (M + 6m)*L^2/12
The angular momentum is
I*w = (M+6m)*w*L^2/12.
