Homework Help: Physics.

Posted by Jake on Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 11:40pm.

The figure below

shows an arrangement of 15 identical disks that have been glued together in a rod-like shape of length L = 1.4500 m and (total) mass M = 135.000 g. The arrangement can rotate about a perpendicular axis through its central disk at point O.
(a) What is the rotational inertia of the arrangement about that axis?


(b) If we approximated the arrangement as being a uniform rod of mass M and length L, what percentage error would we make in using the formula in Table 10-2e to calculate the rotational inertia?
%

the formula given is I=1/12 ML^2
