I've been working on deriving the moment of inertia of a hollow sphere (ie basketball) with uniform density for a while now with no success... Can anyone show me this derivation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The moment of inertia is I = 2/3 MR^2 . If anyone can help me get to this step, it would be greatly appreciated.
