    Volume, center of a mass and moment of inertia of a reqular square pyramid

    Hi,

    In this problem I have a regular square pyramid (base length a , height b) and it's spun about its axis symmetry of z.

    How do I find it's Volume?

    And center of mass?

    How about the moment of intertia of the pyramid?

    Thank you for your help as I've been stuck with this for while.

    I know it needs to be divided into sub-bodies and then use integral.
