Hi, I am doing a physical project and i encountered a vital problem. I need to calculate the moment of inertia of hollow paper block(beam of a trebuchet(type of a catapult)). I was looking on the internet and there is no explanation of this particular case.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, would anyone know how to calculate the moment of inertia for hollow paper object? (block, pyramid with no base and cut top with a hole in it for example)

Is there any formula for it?

Thanks for potential responses
