Dear student,

For the meter scale to complete a revolution, the scale just needs to complete half the circle to rise vertically until the scale is inverted since after that the scale can fall under the effect of gravity only.

From initial state to the final state, the total energy should be conserved.
The angular velocity of the rod will be

Hence
