Moment of Inertia


Circle moment of inertia Find the principal moments of inertia of a circle of radius $R$ and mass $m$. Use the integration over the circle length. (Hint: first define the infinitesimal moment of inertia). The inertia moment is a measure of how a body that has certain dimensions, opposes to changes in rotation motion, exactly

Moment of inertia of figure


Determine the moment of inertia of the area about the x axis. Answer $S = \int dS = \int (from 0 to 1) Y*dx = \int(from 0 to 1) \sqrt{x}*dx =(2/3)*x^3/2 =2/3 m^2$Total mass $M = \rho*z*S$   $\rho$ is density, $z$ is the third coordinate infinitesimal mass is $dm = M/S *dS = M*(3/2)
