PCB: center of mass - moment of inertia | 17 November, 2010

Hi everybody. I need to calculate the moment of inertia of a pcb (with its components) and also its center of mass. The pcb is not manufactured yet. Before that I need to verify those properties. How could I do? The pcb will weight around 50 g.

Should I consider only the most significant elements?

I thought that it would be a good idea use Steiner Theorem. Unfortunately, I was looking for information in the components' datasheets and in most cases there is no information about their center of mass and no information about their moment of inertia either.

What could I do?
