    Hi kingbabi! :smile:

    Do you mean about the "vertical" axis through that point and the centre of the prism?

    If so, it'll be the same as for a rectangular plate. :wink:

    I've had too many problems here at work with moments of inertia (Thanks again Fred). Which moment of inertia are you looking for?

    Mass moment, second area moment, polar?
