Homework Statement


Calculate the moment of inertia of a 4 blade propeller


Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution



I am assuming the propeller blades to be triangles and need a formula for the mass moment of inertia about the tip of each triangular blade. Google hasn't helped thus far. Integration isn't necessary.

Case closed. I sucked it up and did the integral.
