Homework Statement
I'm having a problem calculating the I value for this beam. I'm not sure on how to account for the missing circle in the front square and how to account for the beam changing from a 1" x 1" square to a 5" x 0.5" beam
Homework Equations
Ixx = bh^12/12
The centroid of the beam is around x = 2.89711 in
The thickness of the beam is the same and so is it's density
The Attempt at a Solution
Here is a picture of the beam
**If there was no missing circle, could I just add I_square + I_rect = I_total? **
