Point masses m1 and m2, are placed at the opposite ends of a rigid rod of length L and negligible mass. The rod is set into rotation about an axis perpendicular to it. The position of point P on this rod through which the axis should pass so that the work required to set the rod rotating with angular velocity ${\mathrm{\omega }}_{0}$ is minimum, is given by: 1. $x=\frac{{m}_{1}L}{{m}_{1}+{m}_{2}}$

2. $x=\frac{{m}_{1}}{{m}_{2}}L$

3. $x=\frac{{m}_{2}}{{m}_{1}}L$

4. $x=\frac{{m}_{2}L}{{m}_{1}+{m}_{2}}$  Subtopic:  Moment of Inertia |
