12/4/10 Moments of Inertia Area Moment of Inertia Mass Moment of Inertia - used in Dynamics to calculate the rotational motions of objects. - used to calculate stresses and deflections in beams. Can be thought of as a measure of the cross-sectional area’s resistance to bending. F F Much easier to bend the board in this orientation… …than this one.
