Lets say I have some convex shape defined by a set of points in a clockwise direction. How do I calculate the MOI and the COM?

calculate the MOI.
first assume the coodinat of the axis is (x,y,z).and the distance from points to axis are known as ri.then the MOI =Σmiri^2 or ∫ρiri^2dl
do you think it is right?
