19–37.The pendulum consists of a 5-lb slender rod ABand a 10-lbwooden block. A projectile weighing 0.2 lb is fired into thecenter of the block with a velocity of If thependulum is initially at rest, and the projectile embeds itselfinto the block, determine the angular velocity of thependulum just after the impact.1000 ft>s.SOLUTIONMass Moment of Inertia: The mass moment inertia of the pendulum and theembeded bullet about point AisConservation of Angular Momentum: Since force Fdue to the impact is
