I am trying to find the moment of inertia for an assymetrical barbell shape. The mass as one end of the 2 meter boom is 9kg and at the other is 5.59kg. The boom or rod is a balloon-like tube and I am going to assume it is massless. I am using this information to calculate thrust impulses for a satellite. Can you help? Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
