Homework Help: Product of Inertia/Parallel Axis Theorem

  1. Nov 21, 2008 #1
    The problem is very similar to #9.74, here: http://books.google.com/books?id=o4...&oi=book_result&resnum=1&ct=result#PPA504,M1"

    I understand how the parallel axis theorem and product of inertia 'work,' but I don't understand what to do with this particular shape.

    It has the rounded corners, and I am given no information about them. I have area, Ix, Iy, etc given in a table, but that is all.

    Is there some way to go from Ix/Iy to Ixy or something?

    Or am I just supposed to ignore the rounded corners and treat it like it is 2 rectangles?

    I am unable to complete the link to the problem. Have you tested the link?
    If you can post a figure, it would definitely help.
