explain moment of inertia of hollow  cone

5 years ago


Answers : (3)


Dear Amrit pal


consider this hollow cone ,now cut a ring of thickness dx at a distance x from the origin ,

   so radius of the ring will be  r'=xtanΘ         where Θ is the half angel of cone

so moment of inertia of this ring is  dI =dm r'2

   dm =[ M/πrL ]2πr'dL  where L is slant hight


so dI =[2M/rL]r'3dx/cosΘ

        =tan3Θ/cosΘ [2M/rL]x3dx

        =tan3Θ [2M/rh]x3dx

I =oh tan3Θ [2M/rh]x3dx

The problem can also be solved like this:- AS we are calculating the moment of inertia along the vertical axis, i guess we can actually bring down all the circular rings forming the cone to the base level so that we get a circular disk and the moment of inertia of a circular disk is (MR^2)/2. I want to know if i am right...

I also want to know the moment of inertia of the cone along one of its base diameters. How do i do it??(i got the answer as (3MR^3)/4L.... i am not too sure about it)

Thank You!

is angular displacement vector or scalar
i have mentioned the answer in those terms only where

infinitesimal angular displacemnt=small angle finite angular dislacement =big angle now you can corelate that when small angle is made the angular displacement is vector as it can be add (...
Nikhil Upadhyay 10 days ago
In case of finite angular displacement it is not a true vector as it does not follow vector addition .Whereas infinitesimal angular displacement can be added due to small angular changes.
