**Answer:**

**Explanation:**

Moment of inertia of the rod = 1/12 m L²

m is mass of the rod and L is its length

= 1/2 x 2.3 x 2 x 2

= 4.6 kg m²

Moment of inertia of masses attached with the rod

= m₁ d² + m₂ d²

m₁ and m₂ are masses attached , and d is their distance from the axis of rotation

= 5.3 x 1² + 3.5 x 1²

= 8.8 kg m²

Total moment of inertia = 13.4 kg m²

B )

Rotational kinetic energy = 1/2 I ω²

I is total moment of inertia and ω is angular velocity

= .5 x 13.4 x 2²

= 26.8 J .

C )

when mass of rod is negligible , moment of inertia will be due to masses only

Total moment of inertia of masses

= 8.8 kg m²

D )

kinetic energy of the system

= .5 x 8.8 x 2²

= 17.6 J .
