Help me pls pls pls?

A homogeneous bar OA of length l and weight G located in a vertical plane and articulated in the O plane is at rest in a vertical position. What angular velocity should this barrel be printed to reach a horizontal position if friction is neglected?

    Work it in reverse -- what angular velocity would it have at the vertical position if it fell from horizontal?

    initial PE = mgℓ/2

    final KE = ½Iω² = ½*(mℓ²/3)ω²

    equate the two:

    mgℓ/2 = mℓ²ω²/6 → → →divide through by mℓ/6

    3g = ℓω² → → → → → ω = √(3g / ℓ)
