The Moment of inertia of a Cylinder Perpendicular to the Axis calculator computes the moment of inertia of a solid circular cylinder of uniform density with radius a and height h about an axis perpendicular to the axis of the cylinder and through the center of mass (see diagram).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your preferred units and enter the following:
Moment of Inertial: The calculator returns the moment of inertia (MoI) in kilogram-square meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other moment of inertia units via the pull-down menu.
