Homework Help: Inertia

Posted by Mary on Monday, November 3, 2008 at 1:40pm.

A thin, uniform rod is bent into a square of side length a.
If the total mass is M , find the moment of inertia about an axis through the center and perpendicular to the plane of the square. Use the parallel-axis theorem.
Express your answer in terms of the variables M and a.

PLEASE HELP WITH A THOROUGH EXPLANATION PLEASE!!!

Thanks for the brief explanation before,I got this as the answer but am unsure, so can someone please review it. Thanks, it would be appreciated.

I=1/12 M (2a^2)
