Assuming I have the mass, radius and moment of inertia of the earth, is it possible to determine the unique density distribution of the earth? The assumtion is the earth is composed of N shells with constant density and thickness.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I dont think so, but im not sure why or how.....other than the uniform density can be calculated.

thanks
