# Moment of inertia of a solid cuboid ( Axis of rotation at the width)

## Description

Moment of inertia is the mass property of a rigid body that defines the torque needed for a desired angular acceleration about an axis of rotation. Moment of inertia depends on the shape of the body and may be different around different axes of rotation.

Cuboid is a convex polyhedron bounded by six quadrilateral faces, whose polyhedral graph is the same as that of a cube. Mass moment of inertia of a cuboid can be calculated by its three dimensions and its mass.

## Variables

I_{w} | Moment of inertia of a solid cuboid ( Axis of rotation at the width)t ) (kg*m^{2}) |

m | Mass of the cuboid (kg) |

h | Height of the cuboid (m) |

d | Depth of the cuboid (m) |
