Handle the putty wad with care!

The 2.00kg2.00 kg balls are attached to the ends of a thin rod of length 50.0cm50.0 cm and negligible mass. The rod is free to rotate in a vertical plane without friction about a horizontal axis through its centre . With the rod initially horizontal, a 50.0g50.0 g wad of wet putty drops onto one of the balls, hitting it with a speed of 3.00m/s3.00 m/s and then sticking to it. Through what angle (in degrees) will the system rotate before it momentarily stops?
