A rod with a diameter of 1.8 cm is used to make the letter A in an 18 by 12 cm space. If the number were to spin about the left side of the space calculate the moment of inertia. The rod has a linear mass density of 4.6 kg/m

  1. First compute the moment of inertia about a vertical axis of symmetry. Then apply the parallel axis theorem. The answer will depend upon where the "horizontal bar" of the letter "A" is placed, and whether the 18 cm or the 12 cm is the vertical dimension.
