The uniform rod OC is 0.5 m long, has a mass of 10
kg, and is initially hanging straight down and at
rest.
A bullet (initially at A) has a mass of 20 g
and a horizontal speed of 700 m/s.
After the bullet
passes through the rod OC it is at B and now has a
speed of 400 m/s in the horizontal direction.
Find
the largest angle
θ
that the rod OC makes with the
vertical after the bullet passes through the rod.
