Moments of Inertia

APPHMC-AMYAVW

Two masses of mass, $m$, are connected by a massless rod of length, $L$.

If both of the masses and the length of the rod are doubled in size, what is the value of the new momentum of Inertia, $I^\prime$ in terms of its original moment of Inertia $I$ about its center of mass?

A

$I$

B

$2I$

C

$4I$

D

$8I$

E

$16I$
