Solution

The position of centroid C of the semicircle is already calculated earlier. It is

                                      x¯ =  4 a /3 π ≈ 0.424 a

I(AB) for semicircle =  1/2 [I AB  for full circle] = π a 4 / 8

 IGY +  A (x¯)2  =  I ( AB) for semicircle =  (½) I (AB) for full circle

∴ I y =  π a /8 -  (π a2 /2)(0.424)2 a2

I y  = a4  (0.3927 - 0.2824)

I y  = 0.1103 a 4
