## Homework Statement

Derive the formula for rod's moment of inertia: I = ml

^{2}/12

## Homework Equations

I = ml

^{2}/12

## The Attempt at a Solution

The only one derivation I know of is dividing the rod into two parts and then integrating from 0 to l/2. However' I'd love to know if there's some easier (or more "natural"?) way to do it? Or, if not, maybe you know some website where it's explained as if I were five so that I can get the grasp of it? Because looking at bare integrals, I don't quite know what I'm calculating.
