The assembly is made of the slender rods that have a mass per unit length of 3 kg>m. Determine the mass moment of inertia of the assembly about an axis perpendicular to the page and passing through point O.

LECTURE – 1 MECHANICS Study of what happens to a body when forces are applied to it. Mechanics Rigid bodies Deformable bodies Fluids (Don’t change shape) (Do change shape) Compressible Incompressible Statics Dynamics Fundamental physical Quantities Length Mass Time Force Newton’s second Law relates these quantities through the formula F = ma F = Force applied to object m = mass of object a = acceleration of object 2 different unit systems Standard English
