A system consists of a ball of mass M2M_2 and a uniform rod of mass M1M_1 and length dd. The rod is attached to a horizontal frictionless table by a pivot at point PP and initially rotates at an angular speed ω\omega, pictured below on the left. The rotational inertia of the rod about point PP is 13M1d2\frac{1}{3}M_1d^2 . The rod strikes the ball, which is initially at rest. As a result of this collision, the rod is stopped and the ball moves in the direction shown on the right. Express all answers in terms of M1M_1 , M2M_2 , ω\omega , dd , and fundamental constants.

D. A new ball with the same mass M1M_1 as the rod is now placed a distance xx from the pivot, as shown above. Again assuming the collision is elastic, for what value xx will the rod stop moving after hitting the ball?
