How to Calculate Moment of Inertia of a Solid Cylinder?

Follow the steps given below to calculate the moment of inertia of a solid cylinder

Solid Cylinder Moment of Inertia Calculation

The mass solid cylinder moment of inertia of radius r, and mass m is given by I = 1/2 mr2. Where: m = mass of cylinder (lbm , kg) and r = distance between axis and outside cylinder (in, mm).
Let us follow the steps given for how to Calculate Moment of Inertia of a Solid Cylinder with radius r, and mass m with an example.
How To Calculate Moment Of Inertia Of Solid Cylinder
Formula:
Moment of Inertia of a Solid Cylinder, I = 1/2 mr2
Where,
m = Mass
r = Radius
Moment Of Inertia Of Solid Cylinder Formula
Step 1: Assume a solid cylinder has a mass of 20kg and a radius of 5cm.

Step 2:
Applying the values in the formula,
Solid Cylinder Moment of Inertia
I = 1/2 mr2
I = 1/2 x 20 x 52
I = 0.5 x 20 x 25
I = 250
