Question Description:

20.50

Three particles are located on the X-axis as follows; (1) 4.00-kg at x=0.300 meters, (2) 10-kg at x=0.700, and (3) 1.50-kg at x= 0.960 meters. (a.) Calculate the moment of inertia of each particle with respect to the Y-axis. (b.) Find the total moment of inertia. (c.) Based on the results above, decide whether it is true that the particle with the smallest mass necessarily contributes the smallest amount to the total moment of inertia. Explain.
