Estimate the moment of inertia of nucleus [closed]

How do I estimate the moment of inertia of the rotating nucleus, $^{232}_{90}Th$, using the first order estimate assuming the nucleus does not change shape at high rotational angular momentum? Can you provide me the formula? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

• What would you need to know to learn the angular momentum of a uniformly charged billiards ball? Can you find an approach that works with kind of information you can look up about a nucleus? – dmckee --- ex-moderator kitten Feb 15 '15 at 3:21
