Question

A bar of mass and length is in pure translatory motion and its centre of mass has velocity . It collides and sticks to a second identical bar which is initially at rest. (Assume that it becomes one composite bar of length ). The angular velocity of the composite bar after collision will be :

Correct options are A) and C)

Since there is no external torque, will be conserved.


Since both rods stick together it becomes a rod of mass and length
Hence,
Equating


The rod which has the velocity is sticking to the stationary rod which is at the top. After sticking the inertia of the stationary rod will make the whole rod to rotate in counterclockwise direction. Hence A and  C is correct.
