- Homework Statement
- Calculating moment of inertia for 4 bodies by parallel axis theorem.

- Relevant Equations
- ##I_{CM} = 2kg (1m)^{2} + 2kg (1m)^{2} + 2kg (1m)^{2} + 2kg (1m)^{2} = 8kgm^{2}##

##\sum {I} = Md^{2}##

##I_{CM} = 2kg (1m)^{2} + 2kg (1m)^{2} + 2kg (1m)^{2}

+ 2kg (1m)^{2} = 8kgm^{2}##

##I_{P} = I_{CM} + Md^{2}## (##M## is total mass of all 4 bodies)

##I_{P} = 8 + 8(1) = 16kgm^{2}##
