Expert Answer:

The moment of inertia of a thin rod about an axis passing through one of its end and perpendicular to the length is given by

                                                                (1)
Also, if M and K be the mass of the body and radius of gyration respectively, moment of inertia of the above said body will be given by
                                                                (2)
Comparing eq. (1) and (2) we get,
