Length of the rod, l = 1 m

Mass of the rod, m = 0.5 kg

Let the rod moves at a distance d from the centre.

On applying parallel axis theorem, we get

Moment of inertia about that axis,

\[I = \left( \frac{m l^2}{12} \right) + m d^2 = 0 . 10\]

\[I = \frac{0 . 5 \times l^2}{12} + 0 . 5 \times d^2 = 0 . 10\]

\[ \Rightarrow \frac{1}{12} + d^2 = 0 . 2\]

\[ \Rightarrow d^2 = 0 . 118\]

\[ \Rightarrow d = 0 . 342\text{ m from the centre}\]
