A thin uniform bar has two small balls glued to its ends. The bar is $2.00 \mathrm{~m}$ long and has mass $4.00 \mathrm{~kg}$, while the balls each have mass $0.500 \mathrm{~kg}$ and can be treated as point masses. Find the moment of inertia of this combination about each of the following axes:

(a) an axis perpendicular to the bar through its center;

(b) an axis perpendicular to the bar through one of the balls;

(c) an axis parallels to the bar through both balls.

Solution

VerifiedIn this problem, a think uniform bar has two small balls at its ends. The bar has length $L = 2.00$ m and has mass $M = 4.00$ kg, and the balls can be treated as point masses and have mass $m = 0.500$ kg. We need to find the moment of inertia of the combination in three different axes.
