Mounted on a low-mass rod of length
0.32
m are four balls. Two balls (shown in red on the diagram), each of mass
0.61
kg, are mounted at
opposite ends of the rod. Two other balls, each of mass
0.31
kg (shown in blue on the diagram), are each mounted a distance
0.08
m from the
center of the rod. The rod rotates on an axle through the center of the rod (indicated by the "x" in the diagram), perpendicular to the rod, and it
takes
0.9
seconds to make one full rotation.
