The 6lb slender rod AB is originally shown at rest, suspended in the vertical position. A 1lb ball is thrown at the rod with the velocity v= 50ft/s and strikes the rod at C. Determine the angular velocity of the rod just after the impact. Take e = 0.7 and d= 2ft. (See attachment for diagram)

#### Solution Preview

mass of the rod M = 6 lb

mass of the ball m = 1 lb

length of the rod L = 3 ft

distance AC d = 2 ft

Initial velocity of the ball u = 50 ft/s

coeff. of restitution e = 0.7

Let us assume ...
