    Rotation Bodies - moment of inertia of square sheet

    A square sheet with a uniform density and total mass m is pivoted about an axis A in one corner of the sheet and perpendicular to the plane of the sheet as shown below. If the moment of inertia of the sheet about this axis is , what is the sheet's moment of inertia about a parallel axis, B, at the mid-point of one of its sides?

    use the parallel axis theorem ...

    I = I_{cm} + md^2

    so with part of the equation md^2
    would I divid that by 2 to get the mid point
    and then solve for Icm ?
