I don't understand how to do the follow problem so I was hoping that someone could possibly explain it to me with a possible example. thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Problem:

Find the position of the center of mass of a right circular cone which has a base of radius a, a height h, a mass M, and uniform density. Find the moment of inertia of the cone for rotations about an axis through its tip and the center of the circle making up its base.
