(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. Find the moment of inertia I_x of particle a with respect to the x axis (that is, if the x axis is the axis of rotation), the moment of inertia I_y of particle a with respect to the y axis, and the moment of inertia I_z of particle a with respect to the z axis (the axis that passes through the origin perpendicular to both the x and y axes).

Particle a is located 3r from the y axis, and particle b is located r away.

2. I = mr^2

I = SUMM(m_i*r_i^2)

3. I_a = 9mr^2

I_b = mr^2

Total I = 10mr^2

No idea what I am doing wrong
