# Inertia Tensor for clumps with Intersecting Spheres

Asked by
Bokkisa Srinivas Vivek

Hello community,

I was going through the Source code- Clump.cpp

The inertia tensor at local level for the intersecting spheres clump is calculated from the below equation (line no. 178):

Ig += m*( x.dot(x)

In the second part- "Matrix3r(

I believe it should be m*pow(dx,2)/6 but instead it computes dv*pow(dx,2)/6, was it a mistake in code or done purposefully?
