To which of the two cubes has a larger moment of inertia? I think it's the right one because We know that the minimal moment of inertia is throw the principal axes that goes throw the center of mass. in the right one , the rotation isn't throw the principal axes . there is also the following theorem : The moment of inertia about an arbitrary axis is equal to the moment of inertia about a parallel axis passing through the center of mass plus the moment of inertia of the body about the arbitrary axis, taken as if all of the mass M of the body were at the center of mass. Am I wrong?
