(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Consider a rod of length L and mass m which

is pivoted at one end. The moment of inertia

of the rod about an end is I_{rod}=^{1}/_{3}mL^{2}. An object with mass m is attached to the free end of the rod.

Find the moment of inertia of the system

with respect to the pivot point. Consider

the mass at the end of the rod to be a point

particle.

I tried a lot of different things and now I only get one more try. I need help. Thanks in advance

2. Relevant equations

I_{rod}=^{1}/_{3}mL^{2}.

I=I_{cm}+mr^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

I think you have to use the Parrallel axis theorem( I=I. But I am stuck here._{cm}+mr^{2})
