A light rod of length I) = 1.00 m rotates about an axis perpendicular to its length and passing through its centre as in Figure P8.51. Two particles of masses m1 = 4.00 kg and M2 = 3.00 kg are connected to the ends of the rod. (a) Neglecting the mass of the rod, what is the system's kinetic energy when its angular speed is 2.50 rad/s? (b) Repeat the problem, assuming the mass of the rod is taken to be 2.00 kg.
