Radius of Gyration for Generic Polygons

  1. Aug 10, 2011 #1
    I need to calculate the radius of gyration for a generic, convex polygon, where the density is constant, the axis of rotation is the centroid (which is known), and the positions of the vertices are known. Does such an equation exist?
