A thin rod of length, *L* and mass, *m* is at rest on a frictionless table as depicted in the image above when a point mass of mass, *m* moving with a velocity, *v* collides with the rod at point *p* giving it an angular velocity *$\omega$*.

The rod is hinged about its center of mass. After the collision, the point mass sticks to the rod.

Which of the following actions would double the value of *$\omega$*?
