🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Brar & Pan's class at UW-MADISON.

Solution: A wagon wheel is constructed as shown in the figure. The radius of the wheel is 0.300 m, and the rim has mass 1.41 kg. Each of the eight spokes, that lie along a diameter and are 0.300 m long, has mass 0.260 kg. What is the moment of inertia of the wheel about an axis through its center and perpendicular to the plane of the wheel?
