How do we calculate impact force generated on a rigid rod inclined at 20deg rearward from vertical when impacted with a pendulum mass of 5Kg is released at an angle of 20deg from horizontal?

From this we can find the speed at impact Also we must know the mass of the rod ... and it's length and mass distribution to find it's moment of inertia, before we can proceed.
