🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Rozo's class at ARIZONA.

Solution: A thin, flat, uniform disk has mass M and radius R. A circular hole of radius R/4, centered at a point R/2 from the disks center, is then punched in the disk.a) Find the moment of inertia of the disk with the hole about an axis through the original center of the disk, perpendicular to the plane of the disk. (Hint: Find the moment of inertia of the piece punched from the disk.)b) Find the moment of inertia of the disk with the hole about an axis through the center of the hole, perpendicular to the plane of the disk.

Problem

A thin, flat, uniform disk has mass M and radius R. A circular hole of radius R/4, centered at a point R/2 from the disks center, is then punched in the disk.
a) Find the moment of inertia of the disk with the hole about an axis through the original center of the disk, perpendicular to the plane of the disk. (Hint: Find the moment of inertia of the piece punched from the disk.)
b) Find the moment of inertia of the disk with the hole about an axis through the center of the hole, perpendicular to the plane of the disk.
