    Welcome to PF!

    Hi getneotome! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    Do you mean a ring with inner radius R and outer radius R + h?

    If so, just remember that Moment of Inertia is always additive, so you can just subtract the Moment of Inertia of a disc of radius R from the Moment of Inertia of a disc of radius R + h. :smile:

    Hi getneotome!

    Thanks for the PM, but the idea is that you show us what you've done. :smile:

    getneotome is this a problem you have to solve, or a result that you need for a problem that you have to solve?
