The rod is pivoted about a horizontal, frictionless pin at the end of a thin extension (of negligible mass) a distance 15 m from the center of mass of the rod. Initially the rod makes an angle of 49 with the horizontal. The rod is released from rest at an angle of 49 with the horizontal, as shown in the figure below 15 m 15 m 3 . 5 kg O 49 What is the angular acceleration of the rod at the instant the rod is in a horizontal posi- tion? The acceleration of gravity is 9 . 8 m / s 2 and the moment of inertia of the rod about its center of mass is 1 12 m ℓ 2 . Correct answer: 0 . 603077 rad / s 2 . Explanation: Let : = 15 m , d = = 15 m , θ = 49 , and m = 3 . 5 kg . I = I CM + m d 2 = 1 12 m ℓ 2 + m ℓ 2 = 13 12 m ℓ 2 . Since the rod is uniform, its center of mass is located at ℓ . Recalling that the weight m g acts at the center of mass, the magnitude of the torque at the horizontal position is τ = I α r F = parenleftbigg 13 12 m ℓ 2 parenrightbigg α ( m g ) = 13 12 m ℓ 2 α α = 12 g 13 = 12 (9 . 8 m / s 2 ) 13 (15 m) = 0 . 603077 rad / s 2 . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points A uniform flat plate of metal is situated in the reference frame shown in the figure below. 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 0 1 2 3 4 5 x ( m ) y ( m ) Calculate the x coordinate of the center of mass of the metal plate. Correct answer: 1 . 33333 m. Explanation: Let : ( x 1 , y 1 ) = (0 m , 0 m) ( x 2 , y 2 ) = (4 m , 0 m) ( x 3 , y 3 ) = (0 m , 3 m) . The equation for the hypotenuse is y - y 2 = s ( x - x 2 ) = y 3 x 2 ( x - x 2 ) .
