Chapter 6: Applications of Double Integration
Section 6.6: Second Moments
Find the moments of inertial Ix and Iy, the total mass m, and the radii of gyration Rx and Ry of the lamina that occupies R, the region bounded by y=1−x2 and the x-axis. Take ρ=1. See Example 6.5.1.
Table 6.6.1(a) summarizes the requisite calculations.
m=∫−11∫01−x21 ⅆy ⅆx = π/2
Ix=∫−11∫01−x2y2 ⅆy ⅆx = π/8
Iy=∫−11∫01−x2x2 ⅆy ⅆx = π/8
Rx=Iy/m=π/8π/2 = 12
Ry=Ix/m=π/8π/2 = 12
