And there is no disputing matters of taste. I just add this conversation with GPT > ME: If adding up the three moments of inertias about the x, y and z axis yields a spherically symmetric expression can the moment of inertia formula be derived by simply using a one dimensional integral over the radius? *GPT: "* *Yes, that's correct. Once we have established that the moment of inertia of a solid sphere is spherically symmetric, we can compute it using a one-dimensional integral over the radius. Specifically, the moment of inertia of a solid sphere of radius R and mass M about an axis passing through its center is given by:I = (2/5) MR^2This formula can be derived by integrating the spherically symmetric expression for the moment of inertia over the volume of the sphere using spherical coordinates, which simplifies the calculation to a one-dimensional integral over the radius. Here's how the derivation goes:The moment of inertia of a solid sphere of radius R and mass M about an axis passing through its center is given by:I = ∫∫ (r^2 sin^2θ) ρ dVwhere ρ is the density and dV is the volume element in spherical coordinates. Since the sphere has uniform density, we can write ρ = M / (4/3 * π * R^3).Using the fact that the integrand is spherically symmetric, we can write:I = ∫∫∫ (r^2 sin^2θ) ρ dV = ρ ∫∫∫ (r^2 sin^2θ) r^2 sin θ dr dθ dφSubstituting in the expression for ρ and using the fact that the integral is spherically symmetric, we can simplify the integral to:I = (3/5) MR^2 ∫∫ sin^3θ dθ dφThe integral over θ and φ can be evaluated to give:∫∫ sin^3θ dθ dφ = 4π/3Substituting this into the expression for I, we get:I = (2/5) MR^2* *Therefore, the moment of inertia of a solid sphere about an axis passing through its center can be derived by simply using a one-dimensional integral over the radius, and is given by (2/5) MR^2."* John K Clark See what's on my new list at Extropolis <https://groups.google.com/g/extropolis> 5vd > -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
