Will we be required to derive Moments of inertia for bodies other than rods and disks?
United States
Kinda... not really. You probably would like further explanation. I might give you a composite object made up of point masses, disks, and/or rods so that you would have to use the parallel axis theorem to find the overall moment of inertia. Also, I might just give you the moment of inertia directly (or the radius of gyration). However, you won't have anything that can't be determined using one of those three objects.
