I=∫x^2dm

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]The way I set it up was that I made into strips of length H (height) and width dr. dm=λHdr, where λ is mass over the length, H. But when I do the integral ∫r^2λHdr from 0 to r, I end up with ⅓mr^3, but it should be ⅓mr^2. Is lambda supposed to m/rH? If so, can someone explain why please?
