1. This quiz tests your understanding of the concepts of mass moments of inertia. Enter your calculated values! All your units should be in Kg.m2 2. You must have AT LEAST 3 significant figures in your keyed-in entries. There's a 1% error margin on all answers to cater for round-off errors. 3. The quiz opens at 14:00 on Wednesday 11th September 2013 and closes on Friday 13th September 2013 at 17:00. 4. Let's crack it! :-)

Question 1
An aluminium machine element is shown below. It is required to calculate its dynamic properties based on the following: Part 1 is the rectangular parallelepiped formed by dimensions 2*{A} m x {B} m x {C} m; part 2 is a quarter-cylindrical piece of radius {A}m and height {C} m; part 3 is the semicircular hole with radius 0.5*{A} m and height{C} m.
