physics please help

One end of a thin rod is attached to a pivot, about which it can rotate without friction. Air resistance is absent. The rod has a length of 0.59 m and is uniform. It is hanging vertically straight downward. The end of the rod nearest the floor is given a linear speed v0, so that the rod begins to rotate upward about the pivot. What must be the value of v0, such that the rod comes to a momentary halt in a straight-up orientation, exactly opposite to its initial orientation?

  1. The initial kinetic energy of the bar, which is
    (1/2) I wo^2 = (1/2)*M (L^2/3)*(vo/L)^2
    = (1/6)*M vo^2

    Must equal the increase in potential energy in the upside-down position, which is
    M g L
    since the center of mass raises by an amount L.

    I is the moment of inertia of the rod about the pivot at the top.

    M cancels out and you are left with
    (1/6)vo^2 = g*L

    Solve for vo
