# Three identical thin rods each of mass m and length L are joined together to form an equilateral triangular frame. The moment of inertia of frame about an axis perpendicular to the plane of frame and passing through a corner is:3mL222mL233mL244mL23

A
3mL24
B
4mL23
C
2mL23
D
3mL22
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### Sum of MI of the two rods, at vertex of which the axis passes, is 2×mL2/3=2mL2/3For the third rod, the distance between center of the rod and the axis is d=√3L/2Using parallel axis theorem, its MI is mL2/12+3mL2/4=5mL2/6So total MI of the system is 2mL2/3+5mL2/6=3mL2/2
