Homework Help: College Physics

Posted by Ryan on Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at 9:29pm.

Calculate the rotational inertia of a meter stick, with mass 0.58 kg, about an axis perpendicular to the stick and located at the 43 cm mark. (Treat the stick as a thin rod.)

I know I = (1/12)(M)(L^2) and then I need to use the parallel-axis theorem so I need to add Mh^2 but that is not working. I get 0.156 doing this method but it is not correct.
