Pivoted Rod with Unequal Masses

The figure shows a simple model of a seesaw. These consist of a plank/rod of mass mr and length 2x allowed to pivot freely about its center (or central axis), as shown in the diagram. A small sphere of mass m1 is attached to the left end of the rod, and a small sphere of mass m2 is attached to the right end. The spheres are small enough that they can be considered point particles. The gravitational force acts downward. The magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity is equal to g.

A) What is the moment of inertia I of this assembly about the axis through which it is pivoted?

=> I = 

B) Suppose that the rod is held at rest horizontally and then released. (Throughout the remainder of this problem, your answer may include the symbol I, the moment of inertia of the assembly, whether or not you have answered the first part correctly.)

What is the angular acceleration α of the rod immediately after it is released?

=> α=

  1. It’s truly very difficult in tgis full of activity liofe to listen nws on Television, therefore
    I onpy use internet for thnat reason, and obtain the latest news.

  3. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of
    your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  4. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very

    about making my own but I’m not sure where to
    start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Many thanks
