Two balls with masses M and m are connected by a rigid

rod of length L and negligible mass as shown in Figure

P10.28. For an axis perpendicular to the rod, (a) show that

the system has the minimum moment of inertia when the

axis passes through the center of mass. (b) Show that this R moment of inertia is I = uL2, where u=mM/(m 1 M).

Step 1

Given:

Masses of the balls are M and m respectively.

Length of the rod, = L

We know that moment of inertia around the axis:
