Parallel Axis Theorem

 For Area Moments of Inertia : the cross-sectional area. : the perpendicuar distance between the centroidal axis and the parallel axis. For Area Radius of Gyration : the Radius of Gyration about an axis Parallel to the Centroidal axis. : the Radius of Gyration about the Centroidal axis. : the perpendicuar distance between the centroidal axis and the parallel axis. For Mass Moments of Inertia : the mass of the body. : the perpendicuar distance between the centroidal axis and the parallel axis. For Mass Radius of Gyration : the Radius of Gyration about an axis Parallel to the Centroidal axis. : the Radius of Gyration about the Centroidal axis. : the perpendicuar distance between the centroidal axis and the parallel axis.
