    A thin uniform rod of length .6m and mass M is rotating horizontally at 79.0 rad/s counterclockwise about an axis through its center. A particle of mass M/3 and speed 38.5 m/s hits the rod and sticks. The particle's path is perpendicular to the rod at the instant of the hit, at a distance d from the rod's center.

    At what value of d are the rod and the particle stationary after the hit?
