# Calculate the moment of inertia of an irregular object by the axis translation theorem.

An irregular piece of sheet metal mounted on a pivot at a distance of .62 m from the cm. About this pivot point, it oscillates with SHM with a period measured at 2.25 seconds.

Part A: Find the moment of inertia about the pivot axis.

Part B: Find the moment of inertia about the cm axis.
