hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ive got problem on calculation of moment of inertia for a body that has non-uniform mass contribution . take for example a disc, i believe we can't apply I = (1/2)mr^2 since if we traced back to the derivation of the inertia formula, it assuming constant rho(density)=mass/volume which is not applicable for a body without uniform mass contribution.

Anyone has any idea how calculate the right moment of inertia :uhh:
