Here is a quick reckoner for the *equations* of **moments of inertia of various bodies of various shapes** (in diagram form)

The diagram (figure 1) shows the **Moment of Inertia** formulas of the following**:**(a) Slender rod with the axis through center

(2) Slender rod axis through one end

(3) rectangular plate axis through center

(4) Thin rectangular plate axis along edge

(5) Hollow cylinder

(6) Solid cylinder

(7) Thin-walled hollow cylinder

(8) Solid sphere

(9) Thin-walled hollow sphere.
