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.
