Solved - Moment of Inertia- Spoked Wheel with inner and outer Ring.

I was stuck at this problem of finding the mass moment of inertia of a spoked wheel/ring, which is necessary to find out the angular acceleration or the kinetic energy of the wheel.

It's easy to determine the moment of inertia of a spoked wheel with the given weights of the outer rim/ring, inner rim/ring and weight of spokes. The moment of inertia about the centroid and an axis parallel to the centroidal axis can also be easily found. Please refer the image below for knowing the process.

Thanks! please share and subscribe!
