### Measuring the moment of inertia of a flywheel using simple pendulum motion

I've seen a method for experimentally determining the moment of inertia of a flywheel and I'm not sure whats the reasoning behind it. You attach a small weight $m_1$ to the flywheel's edge, it's ...

### Doubt on the derivation of moment of inertia

I saw the derivation of moment of inertia for a rigid body through an axis of rotation. The derivation did integration of $r^2dm$, which I understood. But my doubt is why can I do the derivation in ...

### How do you choose direction of moment of inertia?

If a car is accelerating forward from rest with no air resistance while weight and normal forces act on the wheels, in which direction is the moment of inertia? Is it positive, clockwise or anti ...

### Physical intuition about the inertia tensor

I'm studying Mechanics on Goldstein's book (Classical Mechanics) and Spivak's book (Physics for Mathematicians) and I'm in doubt about the physical intuition about the inertia tensor. On both books, ...

### Need reference on the minimum moment of inertia [duplicate]

I would like to know if there is a book on classical mechanics about the following Moment Of Inertia About Centre of Mass
A uniform thin bar formed into a L-shaped object of mass $m=2.5kg$ with a longer side of length $l=0.8m$ and a shorter side of length $l/2$. Initially the object is positioned with one end at the ...
