explain moment of inertia of hollow  cone

4 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!
