Question

State an expression for the moment of intertia of a solid uniform disc, rotating about an axis passing through its centre, perpendicular to its plane. Hence derive an expression for the moment of inertia and radius of gyration:

i. about a tangent in the plane of the disc, and

ii. about a tangent perpendicular to the plane of the disc.

Solution

The M. I of a thin uniform disc about an axis passing through its centre and perpendicular to its plane is given by,

IC = (1/2)MR2

i. According to theorem of parallel axis,

IT = Id + Mh2 = Id + MR2 [∵ h = R]

But Id = MR2/4

`therefore I_T=(MR^2)/4+MR^2`

`therefore I_T=5/4 MR^2`

Now , radius of gyration is given by,

`K=sqrt(I/M)`

`therefore K=sqrt((5MR^2)/(4M))`

`thereforeK=sqrt5/2R`

ii. Applying theorem of parallel axis,

IT = IO + Mh2 = IO + MR2 [∵ h = R]

But IO = MR2/2

`I_T=(MR^2)/2+MR^2=3/2MR^2`

Now, radius of gyration is given by,

`K=sqrt(I/M)`

`thereforeK=sqrt((3MR^2)/(2M))`

`thereforeK=sqrt(3/2)R`

 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
