**1. Homework Statement**

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. Homework 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.
