Homework Help: Moments of inertia of halves

  1. Feb 6, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How do you find the tensor of inertia for fractions of the usual volumes?
    (like half of a sphere, half of a cylinder, half of a disk, quarter of a disk, etc.)

    I already know the tensor of inertia for the whole volume.
    Take M as the fraction of the volume's mass, not the whole volume's.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea where to start...
