This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Hey you have mentioned that it is a rectangular\underline{rectangular} plate\underline{plate} of same mass, breadth and length 2R which actually contradicts that it is a rectangle. I have solved the problem taking it to be a square.

Here is how I got it: \Iofdiscaboutdiameter\I_{of disc about diameter}=14\frac {1}{4}MR2R^{2} and \Iofsquareaboutdiameterofplate\I_{of square about diameter of plate}= 43\frac {4}{3}MR2R^{2} . So \Irequired\I_{required}=1912\frac {19}{12}MR2R^{2}

Is it attached about its length or width ?

@Zahid Shekh Mohammed Hey dear, please post complete question because incomplete ques. causes undesired anxiety. You have not mentioned about which diameter ? Please post the complete ques. once more.

No actually breadth is R and length is 2R

@Zahid Shekh Mohammed Ip=I (com) + Md^2 , p= moment of inertia of axis through p , parallel to centre of mass and at a distance d from centre of mass. Icom = M/6(R)^2 for rectangular sheet of breadth R Therefore , Taking p is the centre of disk and axis parallel to centre of mass of rectangular sheet axis, We get Ip=M/6R^2 + M(3R/2)^2 {AS DISTANCE BETWEEN COM OF RECTANGLE AND CIRCLE IS 3R/2}
Therefore, ip = 29Mr^2/12 Adding this to Mr^/4 , we get 32mr^2/12
