Unformatted text preview: r d = 0 . 1 m and has mass 0.2kg. 3. A thin rod with mass M and length l can rotate freely around one end ( A ). A small projectile with mass m hits the rod horizontally with a velocity v at a distance a from A . The small projectile becomes embedded in the rod after the collision. m l a A v M a. Determine the angular momentum of the system around A immediately before and after the collision. b. Determine the angular velocity immediately after the collision. c. Determine the momentum of the system immediately before and after the collision. d. Determine a such that the momentum is conserved during the collision. e. Express the impulse (and its direction) acting on the rod by the hinge during the collision.
