Limited access

A $15\text{ g}$ meter stick is placed horizontally onto a fulcrum located at its $30\text{ cm}$ mark. The meter stick can be treated as a thin rod where its moment of inertia about its center of mass is $I_{cm}=\frac{1}{12}mL^2$.

What is the initial angular acceleration caused by its weight upon release from rest?

A

$1.96 \text{ rad/s}^2$

B

$9.80 \text{ rad/s}^2$

C

$15.9 \text{ rad/s}^2$

D

$23.6 \text{ rad/s}^2$

E

$49.0\text{ rad/s}^2$
