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

Small blocks, each with mass m, are clamped at the ends and at the center of a rod of length L and negligible mass.

Find the formula for I

2. Relevant equations

I=MR^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I=m(0.5 L)^2 + m(0.5 L)^2

I=2(0.5L)^2 m

I=0.5L^2 m

am i right?
