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