Q: The moment of inertia of a thin uniform rod of mass M and length L about an axis passing through its midpoint and perpendicular to its length is I0 . Its moment of inertia about an axis passing through one of its ends and perpendicular to its length is

(a) $I_0 + ML^2 $

(b) $I_0 + \frac{ML^2}{2} $

(c) $I_0 + \frac{ML^2}{4} $

(d) $I_0 + 2 ML^2 $

Ans: (c)
