i've attched a picture of the wheel, which need to calculate moment of intertia with respect to 8 rods.

i've tried to use stiener rule but it's not getting the answer,

moment of wheel is (m1*r^2)/2

moment of rod is (m2*r^2/3)

i use the rule i total = icm + mr^2

so it's 8*( (m1*r^2)/2 + (m2*r^2)/3 )

what am i missing?

2. Relevant equations

m1 = mass of wheel

m2 = mass of rod

r = length of rod

3. The attempt at a solution
