A uniform plate of height H=1.60 m is cut in the form of a parabolic section. The lower boundary of the plate is defined by: y=1.75x^2. The plate has a mass of 4.94 kg. Find the moment of inertia of the plate (in kgm^2) about the y-axis.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I integrated 1.75x^2 to get .583x^3. Then put 1.60 in for x and multiplied by the mass 4.94. I got 4.02 kgm^2 as my answer, which isn't right. Can someone help?
