Figure shows an equilateral triangle OAB and axis of rotation passes through a corner O.
Moment of inertia I of system about the given axis of rotation is given as
Where IAB Is moment of inertia of rod AB . Similarly moment of inertia of other two rods are considered.
Since thin rod AB is symmetrically placed about axis of rotation, we have
IAB = M × [ ( √3 /2 ) L ]= (3/4) M L2
Moment of inertia IOA of rod OA is determined as follows
Let ρ be the linear density of rod , ρ = ( M / L ) .
Let us consider small element of length dl in the rod at a distaance l along the rod from O as shown in figure.
Moment of inertia dI of this small element , dI = dm (l cos30)2 .
Moment of inertia of rod of full length OA is determined as
begin mathsize 14px style I subscript O A end subscript space equals space integral subscript 0 superscript L d m space r squared space equals space integral subscript 0 superscript L rho d l space left parenthesis space l space cos 30 space right parenthesis squared space equals space 3 over 4 rho integral subscript 0 superscript L l squared space d l space equals space 1 fourth open parentheses rho L close parentheses space L squared space equals space 1 fourth M L squared end style
Similarly we get , IOB = (1/4) M L2
I = IAB + IOA + IOB =  M L2 [ (3/4) + (1/4) + (1/4) ] = (5/4) M L2
