## Homework Statement

The thin, homogeneous bent rod has the mass m and the total length of 4b. It rotates with the angular speed of ω = ω

_{0}(24i + 12j - 6.0k) (only rotation)

Determine the expression for the moment of inertia with consideration of the center of mass of the rod

The figure:

## Homework Equations

H = (Ixxωx-Ixyωy-Ixzωz)i+(-Iyzωx+Iyyωy-Iyzωz)j+(-Izxωx-Izyωy+Izzωz)k

m = ρb

## The Attempt at a Solution

¨I plotted the figure in yx-axis and could see that

Iyz=Iyx=Iyz=Izy=Ixz=Izx=0 is symmetric

But i'm not sure about Ixx, Iyy and Izz
