Mechanics Homework 21-1 1026 - Moment of Inertia with respect to the x-axis Name_______________ Mr. Haynes Date_______________

Problem 21-1 Knowing that distance $$h$$ is 40 mm, determine the moment of inertia of the shape about the $$x$$ axis.

Hint: break the shape up into three rectangles with their bases along the $$x$$ axis, then add their individual values of $$I_x$$.

$$I_x= 846.7 \times 10^3 \textrm{ mm}^4$$
