Eggs in a Carton Moment of Inertia Problem

By Flipping Physics, 09/16/2018

Two equal mass eggs are placed at either end in an egg carton of negligible mass. The egg carton is initially rotated about its middle. If the egg carton is now rotated about one end, what is the final moment of inertia of the eggs relative to their initial moment of inertia? Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 topic.
