Homework Statement
To calculate the moment of inertia of a cantilevered tapered tube with midthickness large radius RL and midthickness small radius RS
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
Area of the larger end of the tube
AL=2*pi*RL*t
Area of the smaller end of the tube
AS=2*pi*RS*t
Area of the tube at a distance x is
AX=2*pi*RX*t
RX=RL  x*tanalpha
tanalpha=deltaR/L
deltaR = RLRS[/B]
