**1. Homework Statement**

A thin 7.0 kg wheel of radius 32 cm is weighted to one side by a 1.0 kg weight, small in size, placed 25 cm from the center of the wheel.

(a) Calculate the position of the center of mass of the weighted wheel.

*edit* found the CM, its 3.125cm from the center *edit*

(b) Calculate the moment of inertia about an axis through its CM, perpendicular to its face.

*edit*SOLVED*edit*

**2. The attempt at a solution**

*edit*I realize I need to use the parallel axis theorem on part b, but I don't really understand how to apply it.*edit*
