Problem 15E

The three masses shown in Figure P7.62 are connected by massless, rigid rods.

a. Find the coordinates of the center of gravity.

b. Find the moment of inertia about an axis that passes through mass A and is perpendicular to the page.

c. Find the moment of inertia about an axis that passes through masses B and C.

Solution 15E

Step 1 of 6:

In this question, we need to find coordinates of center of gravity

In part b, we need to find moment of inertia about axis that passes through mass A and is perpendicular to the page

In part c, we need to find moment of inertia about an axis that passes through masses B and C
