A uniform cylinder, has mass 18 kg and radius .5 m. Its moment of inertia about an axis which is .3 m from the center of mass axis, is 3.87 kg m^2. Each axis is perpendicular to the circular face of the cylinder.
Find the moment of inertia about an axis at the surface of the cylinder.
The moment of inertia of a uniform cylinder of mass M and radius R, about an axis through its center of mass (c.m.) and perpendicular to its face is:
