# PERIOD OF THE LEG The period of the leg can be approximated by treating the leg as a physical pendulum, with a period of 2pi*sqrt(I/mgh), where I is the moment of inertia, m is the mass, and h is the distance from the pivot point to the center of mass

PERIOD OF THE LEG
The period of the leg can be approximated by treating the leg as a physical pendulum, with a period of 2pi*sqrt(I/mgh), where I is the moment of inertia, m is the mass, and h is the distance from the pivot point to the center of mass.
The leg can be considered to be a right cylinder of constant density. For a man, the leg constitutes 16% of his total mass and 48% of his total height.
Find the period of the leg of a man who is 1.82 m in height with a mass of 72 kg. The moment of inertia of a cylinder rotating about a perpendicular axis at one end is ml^2/3

1) The parallel axis theorem provides a useful way to calculate the moment of inertia I about an arbitrary axis. The theorem states that I = Icm + Mh2, where Icm is the moment of inertia of the object relative to an axis that passes through the center of mass and is parallel to the axis of interest, M is the total mass of the object, and h is the perpendicular distance between the two axes. Use this theorem and...
