Moment of inertia


Moment of inertia of a square plate of side $l$ about the axis passing through one of the corner and perpendicular to the plane of square plate is given by :

  1. $\frac{\mathrm{M} l^{2}}{6}$

  2. $\mathrm{M} l^{2}$

  3. $\frac{\mathrm{M} l^{2}}{12}$

  4. $\frac{2}{3} \mathrm{M} l^{2}$

Correct Option: , 4


According to perpendicular Axis theorem.


$\mathrm{I}_{\mathrm{z}} \Rightarrow \frac{\mathrm{m} \ell^{2}}{3}+\frac{\mathrm{m} \ell^{2}}{3}$

$=\frac{2 m \ell^{2}}{3}$
