A flat rectangular plate of Mass M and sides a and 2a rotates with angular velocity w about an axle through two diagonal corners. The bearings supporting the plate are mounted just at the corners. Find the force on each bearing.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am not sure how to find force using Euler's equations since they just relate angular velocities and moments of inertia. The answer is supposed to be F=maw^2/10*sqrt5. Anyone know how I use the 3 principle axes to solve this?
