Hi Jay,

 

First apply perpendicular axis theorem.

Consider two axes, each through O in the plane of the lamina, where one axis L is parallel to AB and the other axis L" is perpendicular to AB.

 

So now by perpendicular axis theorem, we have IL + IL" = Io = 1.6Ma2.

But IL=IL" (due to symmetry). So IL = 0.8Ma2.

 

Now use parallel axis theorem. IAB = IL + M(a+a)2

So IAB = 4.8Ma2.

 

Hope that helps.

 

All the best.

Regards,

Ashwin (IIT Madras).
