# Moment of inertia of thick-walled cylindrical tube with open ends

## Description

Mass moment of inertia, measures the extent to which an object resists rotational acceleration about an axis, and is the rotational analogue to mass.

Moment of inertia of a thick-walled cylindrical tube with open ends, (parallel to the axis of its height), is related to the length of the height of the cylinder, the inner cylinder radius, the outer cylinder radius and the density.

## Variables

I_{h} | Moment of inertia (parallel to the axis of its height) (kg*m^{2}) |

π | pi |

ρ | Density of the material (kg/m^{3}) |

h | Heigt of the cylinders (m) |

r_{2} | Outer cylinder radius (m) |

r_{1} | Inner cylinder radius (m) |
