    Oscillating rectangular plate

    How do i find the period of small oscillations and length of the equivalent simple pendulum, for a rectangular plate (edges a and b) suspended at its corner and oscillating in vertical plane? T = 2pi (I/mgl)^1/2 i calculated l (length) to be (a^2 + b^2 )^1/2 ---(the diagonal) is this right...

    Moment of Inertia of rectangular plate

    How do i find using integrals, I of a rectangular plate with sides a and b with respect to side b? I know i have to use the equation I = integral of (a^2 dm) and i know density = m/ab but i'm having trouble figuring out the mass element. Can someone tell me what the mass element is? and...
