A nonuniform rod lies along the x-axis with its left end at x = y = 0 . It has a total mass M , length L and a mass distribution of dM / dx = B (L^{2} − x^{2}), where B is a constant to be found in your analysis. What is the rotational inertia of the rod about the y-axis, pivoting about a vertical axis through its left end?
