## How do you determine the moment of inertia?

## How is it possible to calculate the moment of inertia?

- Measure the distance r from any particle in the object to the axis
**of**symmetry - Square that distance
- Multiply that squared distance times the mass
**of**the particle - Repeat for every particle in the object
- Add all
**of**these values up

## How to figure the moment of inertia?

- Identify the x-axis and y-axis
**of**the complex figure. If not given, create your axes by drawing the x-axis and y-axis on the boundaries**of**the figure. Identify and divide the complex shape into basic shapes for easier computation**of moment of inertia**. ... Solve for the area and centroid**of**each basic shape by creating a tabular form**of**the solution. ... More items...
