    Four sheets are displaced by d from the center and they are equal and have w by h dimensions with a mass m. It is required to find the moment of inertia around the axes x and z as shown in the figure attached.


    2. Relevant equations

    I=(mh^2/3)+(mw^2/12)

    3. The attempt at a solution
