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.
