Expert Answer

Figure shows a semi-circular ring of radius R.

Let the centre of curvature O coincides with origin of polar coordinate (r-θ) system .

It is required to get moment of inertia about axis passing through P which is the geometrical centre of semi-circular ring.

Axis of rotation is perpendicular to the plane of ring.

Let us consider a small length dl of ring at Q . If the line joining Q to origin makes angle θ with reference line

and length dl subtends angle dθ, then this small length equals ( R dθ).

If M is mass of whole ring and mass is uniformly distributed, mass density m, i.e. mass per unit length is given by , m = M/(πR)

If Polar coordinates of point Q is (Rcosθ , Rsinθ) and that of point P (0,R) then distance PQ is given by,

Moment of inertia of small length at Q, dI = dm r

^{2}.............(1)where dm is mass of small length, m×dl = m×R dθ ...................(2)

Hence moment of inertia I of whole ring is given by,

I = 0.363 M R
