Example 9 The Moment of Inertial Depends on Where the Axis Is. Two particles each have mass and are fixed at the ends of a thin rigid rod. The length of the rod is L. Find the moment of inertia when this object rotates relative to an axis that is perpendicular to the rod at (a) one end and (b) the center.
