What will be the difference between MOI of two triangle sections is in 1st, MOI is taken about its base and in 2nd MOI is taken about its centroid?

a) bh3/12

b) bh3/18

c) bh3/36

d) bh3/24

**
View Answer**

Answer: bExplanation: The moment of inertia of a triangular section about the base is bh3/12 The moment of inertia of a triangular section about an axis passing through C.G. is bh3/36 So the difference = bh3/12 – bh3/36 = bh3/18.
