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!

when constant force is applied on a body,what will be its initial velocity?
Actually initial velocity does not depend on the force applied. Initial velocity depends on the state of the body (i.e, rest or motion) before the force is applied. If the body is initially ...
