**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

A student throws a stick of length L up into the air.At the moment it leaves her hand the speed of stick’s closest end is zero.The stick completes N turns just as it is caught by student at initial release point.What is the height ‘h’ that center of mass rise ?

**2. Relevant equations**

v=ωr

**3. The attempt at a solution**

I think I can proceed with the problem but feel a little unsure about the initial orientation of the stick just as it leaves the hand and the initial condition that the the speed of stick’s closest end is zero .

Could somebody reflect on how to interpret the initial condition given in the problem ?

Thanks
