Question

For the same mass which of the following will have the largest moment of inertia about an axis passing through the centre of gravity and perpendicular to the plane of the body?

A
B
C
A square lamina of side a
D
Four identical rods forming square of side a

Solution

The correct option is B Four identical rods forming square of side $$a$$MI of disk of radius a,  about given axis is $$\dfrac{ma^{2}}{2}$$ MI of the ring of radius a about given axis is $$ma^{2}$$ MI of square of side a about given axis is $$\dfrac{ma^{2}}{6}= \dfrac{ma^{2}}{6}$$ MI of four rods forming a square of side a about given axis $$\dfrac{4\times m(a)^{2}} {12}+ma^{2}= \dfrac {4ma^{2}}{3}\\$$ So, among all options four rods forming square of side a has highest moment of inertia. Thus option D is correct.Physics
