Area Moment of Inertia - Filled Right Triangle

Description

The second moment of area, also known as moment of inertia of plane area, area moment of inertia, polar moment of area or second area moment, is a geometrical property of an area which reflects how its points are distributed with regard to an arbitrary axis.
The second moment of area for a shape is easier to be calculeted with respect to a parallel axis or with respect to a perpendicular axis through the centroid of the shape.
The formula calculates the Moment of Inertia of a right triangle of base b and height h in respect to an axis collinear with the base of the triangle (one of the sides adjacent to the right angle)
