    Three principal axis moments of inertia for hexagonal prism?

    Thanks folks for replies. I'll take a photo of some of the work I've done later tonight, hopefully, to show the beginnings of putting the triple integral together for one of the axes. I think my most promising approach is dividing the hexagon into a rectangle and triangle and then going from there.
