Moments of inertia for a solid tetrahedron


In physics and applied mathematics, the mass moment of inertia, measures the extent to which an object resists rotational acceleration about an axis, and is the rotational analogue to mass. For a solid tetrahedron the moment of inertia in respect to the axis passing through the centroid of the tetrahedron can be calculated by its side and mass.
