March 23, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 1 Physics for Scientists & Physics for Scientists & Engineers 1 Engineers 1 Spring Semester 2006 Lecture 34 March 23, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 2 Moment of Inertia for Constant Density Moment of Inertia for Constant Density ! If we take our results for the moment of inertia and assume that the density is constant we get The moment of inertia for constant density ! The mass for constant density The moment of inertia I = r " 2 dV V # M = dV V " = V I = M V r ! 2 dV V " March 23, 2006 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 3 Moments of Inertia Moments of Inertia ! Solid cylinder ! Hollow cylinder ! Hoop ! Rod ! Solid sphere ! Hollow sphere ! Rectangular block ! Question : what is the common form? I = 1 2 MR 2 I = MR 2 I = 1 2 M R 1 2 + R 2 2 ( ) I = 1 12 Mh 2 I = 2 5 MR 2 I = 2 3 MR 2 I = 1 12 M ( a 2 + b 2 ) I = cMR 2 with c !
