INERTIA
Under this topic first we will see how to find the areas of given figures and the volumes of given solids. Then the terms centre of gravity and centroids are explained. Though the title of this topic do not indicate the centroid of line segment, that term is also explained, since the centroid of line segment will be useful in finding the surface area and volume of solids using theorems of Pappus and Guldinus. Then the term first moment of area is explained and the method of finding centroid of plane areas and volumes is illustrated. After explaining the term second moment of area, the method of finding moment of inertia of plane figures about xx or yy axis is illustrated. The term product moment of inertia is defined and the mehtod of finding principal moment of inertia is presented. At the end the method of finding mass moment of inertia is presented.
2.1
DETERMINATION OF AREAS AND VOLUMES
In the school education methods of finding areas and volumes of simple cases are taught by many methods. Here we will see the general approach which is common to all cases i.e. by the method of integration. In this method the expression for an elemental area will be written then suitable integrations are carried out so as to take care of entire surface/volume. This method is illustrated with standard cases below, first for finding the areas and latter for finding the volumes:

CENTRE OF GRAVITY AND CENTROIDS
Consider the suspended body shown in Fig. 2.10a. The self weight of various parts of this body are acting vertically downward. The only upward force is the force T in the string. To satisfy the equilibrium condition the resultant weight of the body W must act along the line of string 11. Now, if the position is changed and the body is suspended again (Fig. 2.10b), it will reach equilibrium condition in a particular position. Let the line of action of the resultant weight be 2 2 intersecting 11 at G. It is obvious that if the body is suspended in any other position, the line of action of resultant weight W passes through G. This point is called the centre of gravity of the body. Thus centre of gravity can be defined as the point through which the resultant of force of gravity of the body acts.

The above method of locating centre of gravity is the practical method. If one desires to locating centre of gravity of a body analytically, it is to be noted that the resultant of weight of various portions of the body is to be determined. For this Varignon's theorem, which states the moment of resultant force is equal to the sum of moments of component forces, can be used. Referring to Fig. 2.11, let Wi be the weight of an element in the given body. W be the total weight of the body. Let the coordinates of the element be xi, yi, zi and that of centroid G be xc, yc, zc. Since W is the resultant of Wi forces, W = W1 + W2 + W3 . . . = Wi and Similarly, and Wxc = W1x1 + W2x2 + W3x3 + . . . Wxc = Wixi = Ü xdw Wyc = Wiyi = Ü ydw Wz c = Wizc = Ü zdw

(2.5) Lyc = Liyi = y dL The term centre of gravity is used only when the gravitational forces (weights) are considered. This term is applicable to solids. Equations 2.2 in which only masses are used the point obtained is termed as centre of mass. The central points obtained for volumes, surfaces and line segments (obtained by eqns. 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5) are termed as centroids.

From the above equation we can make the statement that distance of centre of gravity of a body from an axis is obtained by dividing moment of the gravitational forces acting on the body, about the axis, by the total weight of the body. Similarly from equation 2.4, we have,
A A By terming Aix: as the moment of area about the axis, we can say centroid of plane area from any axis is equal to moment of area about the axis divided by the total area. The moment of area Aix: is termed as first moment of area also just to differentiate this from the term Aix E , which will be dealt latter. It may be noted that since the moment of area about an axis divided by total area gives the distance of the centroid from that axis, the moment of area is zero about any centroidal axis.

Difference between Centre of Gravity and Centroid
From the above discussion we can draw the following differences between centre of gravity and centroid: (1) The term centre of gravity applies to bodies with weight, and centroid applies to lines, plane areas and volumes. (2) Centre of gravity of a body is a point through which the resultant gravitational force (weight) acts for any orientation of the body whereas centroid is a point in a line plane area volume such that the moment of area about any axis through that point is zero.
Use of Axis of Symmetry
Centroid of an area lies on the axis of symmetry if it exits. This is useful theorem to locate the Y centroid of an area. This theorem can be proved as follows: Axis of symmetry Consider the area shown in Fig. 2.22. In this figure yy is the axis of symmetry. From eqn. 2.4, the distance of centroid from this axis is x x given by:
Ai xi
O
X
A Consider the two elemental areas shown in Fig. 2.22, which are equal in size and are equidistant from the axis, but on either side. Now the sum of moments of these areas cancel each other since the Fig. 2.22 areas and distances are the same, but signs of distances are opposite. Similarly, we can go on considering an area on one side of symmetric axis and corresponding image area on the other side, and prove that total moments of area (Aixi) about the symmetric axis is zero. Hence the distance of centroid from the symmetric axis is zero, i.e. centroid always lies on symmetric axis. Making use of the symmetry we can conclude that: (1) Centroid of a circle is its centre (Fig. 2.23); b d (2) Centroid of a rectangle of sides b and d is at distance and from the corner as shown 2 2 in Fig. 2.24.

Centroid of a Triangle Consider the triangle ABC of base width b and height h as shown in Fig. 2.25. Let us locate the distance of centroid from the base. Let b1 be the width of elemental strip of thickness dy at a distance y from the base. Since DAEF and DABC are similar triangles, we can write:
b1 hy = b h

Consider the semicircle of radius R as shown in Fig. 2.26. Due to symmetry centroid must lie on y axis. Let its distance from diametral axis be y . To find y , consider an element at a distance r from the centre O of the semicircle, radial width being dr and bound by radii at and + d. Area of element = r ddr. Its moment about diametral axis x is given by: rd × dr × r sin = r2 sin dr d Total moment of area about diametral axis,

Centroid of Composite Sections So far, the discussion was confined to locating the centroid of simple figures like rectangle, triangle, circle, semicircle, etc. In engineering practice, use of sections which are built up of many simple sections is very common. Such sections may be called as builtup sections or composite sections. To locate the centroid of composite sections, one need not go for the first principle (method of integration). The given composite section can be split into suitable simple figures and then the centroid of each simple figure can be found by inspection or using the standard formulae listed in Table 2.2. Assuming the area of the simple figure as concentrated at its centroid, its moment about an axis can be found by multiplying the area with distance of its centroid from the

reference axis. After determining moment of each area about reference axis, the distance of centroid from the axis is obtained by dividing total moment of area by total area of the composite section. Example 2.4 Locate the centroid of the Tsection shown in the Fig. 2.29. Solution. Selecting the axis as shown in Fig. 2.29, we can say due to symmetry centroid lies on y axis, i.e. x = 0. Now the given Tsection may be divided into two rectangles A1 and A2 each of size 100 × 20 and 20 × 100. The centroid of A1 and A2 are g1(0, 10) and g2(0, 70) respectively. The distance of centroid from top is given by:

Example 2.5 Find the centroid of the unequal angle 200 × Fig. 2.29 150 × 12 mm, shown in Fig. 2.30. Solution. The given composite figure can be divided into two rectangles: A1 = 150 × 12 = 1800 mm2 A2 = (200 12) × 12 = 2256 mm2 Total area A = A1 + A2 = 4056 mm2 Selecting the reference axis x and y as shown in Fig. 2.30. The centroid of A1 is g1 (75, 6) and that of A2 is:

Solution. Selecting the coordinate system as shown in Fig. 2.31, due to symmetry centroid must lie on y axis, i.e.,
x =0
Now, the composite section may be split into three rectangles A1 = 100 × 20 = 2000 mm2 Centroid of A1 from the origin is:
Similarly
20 = 140 mm 2 A2 = 100 × 20 = 2000 mm2
y1 = 30 + 100 +
100 = 80 mm 2 A3 = 150 × 30 = 4500 mm2, and
y2 = 30 +
30 = 15 mm 2 A y + A2 y 2 + A3 y 3 y = 1 1 A 2000 + 140 + 2000 × 80 + 4500 × 15 = 2000 + 2000 + 4500 = 59.71 mm Thus, the centroid is on the symmetric axis at a distance 59.71 mm from the bottom as shown in Fig. 2.31. Ans.
