    MOMENT OF INERTIA AND POLAR MOMENT OF INERTIA

    MOMENT OF INERTIA (I) AND POLAR MOMENT OF INERTIA (J) It is a property of a cross-sectional area to resist bending. Larger is the value of moment of inertia, lesser will be the bending. It is also called second moment of the area of cross-section. Its symbol is ‘I’. Its units are mm4. Therefore wherever […]
