I need help finding the moment of inertia for a hollow cylinder with a closed bottom (like a glass of water). My strategy is to add the moments of inertia of the cylinder and the disk but I only have the total mass of the whole object. Is there a way to find the mass of each part or is there another approach to this problem?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
