Question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For a thin uniform rod of length l and mass M, find the momen of inertia about an axis perpendicular to the rod and passing through its center, and the moment of inertia about an axis perpendicular to the rod and passing through on one end.

Answer:

For the end, Iend= 1/3MR^2

For the center, Iend=Icm + M(L/2)^2 = 1/3ML^2 so Icm=1/12ML^2

Is this all I need for this question?
