- In the case of an axial moment, the square root of the resulting mean square is called the radius of
**gyration**of the system about the axis in question. - Which we shall meet with presently as the ellipsoid of
**gyration**at G. - Since I~=Ii., I~=o, we deduce 100=3/4Ma2, ~ =4MaZ; hence the value of the squared radius of
**gyration**isfora diameter 3/4ai, and for the axis of symmetry 3/4af. - From its axis (0), if the radius of
**gyration**about a longitudinal axis through G, aiid 0 the inclin - ation of OG to the vertical, FIG. - If M be the total mass, k the radius of
**gyration**(~ ii) about the axis, we have sin 0, (3)
