39. The particles are treated “point-like” in the sense that Eq. 10-33 yields their rotational inertia, and the rotational inertia for the rods is figured using Table 10-2(e) and the parallel-axis theorem (Eq. 10-36). (a) With subscript 1 standing for the rod nearest the axis and 4 for the particle farthest from it, we have 222212342221113(2 )122122885(1.2 kg)(0.056 m) +5(0.85 kg)(0.056 m)
