## Homework Equations

Jp = Ix + Iy

Ix = &int y^2dA

Iy = &int X^2dA

## The Attempt at a Solution

A = 2(a/2)(a) + (2)(1/2)(a/2)(a) = 3a^2/2

Jp = Ix + Iy

Ix = &int y^2dA = ? I am having trouble with this next step. If someone could please help me with it and explain to me what's suppose to integrated I would be eternally grateful

I have 2 &int a-0
