Area Moment of Inertia - Filled Regular Hexagon
The second moment of area, also known as moment of inertia of plane area, area moment of inertia, polar moment of area or second area moment, is a geometrical property of an area which reflects how its points are distributed with regard to an arbitrary axis.
The second moment of area for a shape is easier to be calculeted with respect to a parallel axis or with respect to a perpendicular axis through the centroid of the shape. Area moments of inertia of a filled regular hexagon with side length a in respect to an axis going through the center of the hexagon and parallel to the shape, is depended on the side of the hexagon.
