Two identical spheres of radius R and mass M are joined by a rod of lenght 4R. Initially one sphere is vertically above the other, at a very unstable equilibrium. A tiny fly hits the upper sphere and destabilizes the equilibrium, making the spheres start to move. If T is the tension at the rod immediately before the upper sphere reaches the ground, Calculate 46 T/(3Mg)
