Question

# The moment of inertia of a thin uniform rod of mass M and length L about an axis passing through its midpoint and perpendicular to its length is $$0_0$$. Its moment of inertia about an axis passing through one of its ends and perpendicular to its length is :

A
00+ML22
B
00+ML24
C
00+2ML2
D
00+ML2

Solution

## The correct option is B $$0_0 + \dfrac{ML^2}{4}$$Using Parallel Axis Theorem, Moment of inertia about an axis passing through one of the rod ends(E) and perpendicular to its length $$=$$[ moment of inertia of a about an axis passing through its midpoint (o) and perpendicular to its length $$+$$ (total mass of the rod $$\times$$ square of distance between points o and E.)]$$\therefore I_E=I_o+M(\dfrac{L}{2})^2=0_0+\dfrac{ML^2}{4}$$Physics
