A uniform rod of mass M = 5.18 kg and length L = 1.20 m can pivot freely (i.e., we ignore friction) about a hinge attached to a wall, as seen in the figure attached in a Word doc. The rod is held horizontally and then released. Determine the angular acceleration of the rod at the moment of release.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com February 24, 2021, 2:16 pm ad1c9bdddf
