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
has the shape of the triangle whose vertices are 0 ,0,0,3,4,0, and whose density is ρ=1+2 x+ y/2. See Example 6.5.4.
Table 6.6.4(a) summarizes the requisite calculations.
m=∫04∫031−x/4ρ ⅆy ⅆx = 25
Ix=∫04∫031−x/4ρ⋅y2 ⅆy ⅆx = 632
Iy=∫04∫031−x/4ρ⋅x2 ⅆy ⅆx = 4885
