PROBLEM 9.131 Given the dimensions and the mass mof the thin conical shell shown, determine the moment of inertia and the radius of gyration of the shell with respect to the xaxis. (Hint:Assume that the shell was formed by removing a cone with a circular base of radius afrom a cone with a circular base of radius at+. In the resulting expressions, neglect terms containing t2, t3, etc. Do not forget to account for the difference in the heights of the two cones.) SOLUTION First note hhat a′=+or ()hhata′ =+For a cone of height Hwhose base has a radius r, have
