Use a parallel axis theorem to determine the moment of inertia of a uniform disc of mass M and radius R about the x-axis perpendicular to the plane of the disc and passing at the edge of the disc.

Hello and welcome to MHB! :D

We ask that our users show their progress (work thus far or thoughts on how to begin) when posting questions. This way our helpers can see where you are stuck or may be going astray and will be able to post the best help possible without potentially making a suggestion which you have already tried, which would waste your time and that of the helper.

Can you post what you have done so far?
