PROBLEM 9.150 A homogeneous wire with a weight per unit length of 0.041 lb/ft is used to form the figure shown. Determine the moment of inertia of the wire with respect to each of the coordinate axes. SOLUTION First compute the mass of each component. Mass of each component is indentical ( ) / mL g = Have ( )( ) 2 0.041lb/ft 1.5 ft 32.2 ft/s = 2 0.00190994 lb s /ft =⋅ Using the equations given above and the parallel axis theorem, have
