This is not homework, but since it is related I thought it should go here. I have not yet had calculus III class, but I would like for someone to show me how the moment of inertia is derived for a solid sphere. From what I have heard from my physics professor, it is easiest to use sphereical coordinates to find it. Am I right to assume sphereical coordinates are something similar to polar coordinates in the third dimension?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
