(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A meter stick of mass .44 kg rotates, in the horizontal plane, about a vertical axis passing thru the 30 cm mark. What is the moment of inertia of the stick? Treat it as a long uniform rod.

2. Relevant equations

I=1/2M(R^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

=1/2(.44)(.3^2)

Once I calculate this, is the the problem complete? It seems too simple.
