The Moment of Inertia of Area, used in the study of deformation applied in structure projects, many times is confused with the Moment of Inertia of Mass, that appears in the dynamics of the rigid bodies. Its developments are similar in many aspects, but its applications are different. Word-key: Moment of inertia, moment of area inertia, moment of mass inertia. Abstract – This article introduces and explains the Moment of Inertia used in the study of exacts sciences. The Moment of Inertia of Area, used in the study of deformation applied in project design, it is often confused with the Moment of Inertia of Mass, which appears in the dynamics of rigid bodies.
Their developments ploughs similar in many aspects, but to their applications ploughs different. Keywords: moment of inertia, moment of inertia of area. Introduction This article brings some deductions and explanations related to the calculation of Moment of Inertia, much known by students of Engineering, Technology and Physics, this calculation are essential for the resolution of diverse problems of the physics and for the most varied types of sizings for technologists and engineers. We will present the concept of the two types of Moment of Inertia. It lowers the complete article to continue reading.
