1. In the calculations of the moment of inertia of the area about an inclined axis, we have some transformation done. They are:

a) u = xcosθ + ysinθ

b) u = xcosθ – ysinθ

c) u = ycosθ + xsinθ

d) u = ycosθ – xsinθ

View Answer

Explanation: In the moment of inertia calculations we see that the net force acts at the centroid of the loading body. That is if the loading system is in the form of the triangle then at the distance 2 by 3 of the base the net force of the loading will act. And the load will be half the area of the loading. Thus when there is the inclination of the axis, we use transformation.

2. In the calculations of moments of inertia for an area about inclined axis we use the product of a moment of inertia. It is the the sum of _____________ and _________________

a) Area and volume

b) Volume and linear distance

c) Moment of inertia at centroid and the product of the area and del dx and del dy

d) Moment of inertia at base and the product of the area and del dx and del dy

6. There is parallel axis theorem for the area, and it is can be used to determine the moment of inertia of an area about inclined axis.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: There is no perpendicular axis theorem for the area. In spite, there is the theorem as parallel axis for any area. Thus we have the theorem which is used to add the two mutually perpendicular moment of inertias.

7. Determine the moment of inertia of the area about the y-axis.

a) 0.273m^{2}

b) 11m^{2}

c) 0.141m^{2}

d) 0.811m^{2}

View Answer

Explanation: Parallel axis for any area is used to add the two mutually perpendicular moment of inertias for areas. It gives a moment of inertia perpendicular to the surface of the body. That is the moment of inertia perpendicular to the surface in considerance.

10. Moment of Inertia about an inclined axis is the integration of the cube of the distance of the centroid and the del area along the whole area of the structure and after this calculations, we multiply the moment of areas.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: The moment of inertia of the section is the integration of the square of the distance of the centroid and the del area along the whole area of the structure. This is having much significance in the various fields in the engineering sector. The main types are the ‘I’ section structures which are being much used.

15. If any external moment along with the force is applied on the structure and we are determining the moment of inertia for areas about inclined axis then what should we consider?

a) The net force will act at the centroid of the structure only

b) The net load will not be formed as all the forces will be cancelled

c) The net force will act on the base of the loading horizontally

d) The net force will not be considered, there would be a net force of the distribution, rest will be the external forces

View Answer

Explanation: The external forces are treated differently. They are not added by the force of the distributed loading. That is the force not only acts at the centroid always. It can be shifted also. Depending on the external forces. Thus the use of centroid or centre of mass.
