The paper presents a method proposed for estimating the axial moment of inertia of a rigid body. The principle of the method consists in finding the oscillation periods for physical pendulum created by suspending the considered body by bearings with axes parallel to the axis considered for finding the axial moment of inertia. These data are sufficient to estimate both the central moment of inertia with respect to an axis parallel to the considered axis and the position of the center of mass.
Keywords: vector dynamics, axial moment of inertia, physical pendulum period
