comment python matplotlib Agg vs. interactive plotting and tight_layout
The unsatisfying workaround is to remove mpl.use('Agg'), and to use fig.set_tight_layout(True) instead of fig.tight_layout() as suggested by @FelipeCorreia

comment Moment of inertia question
What I meant was that the 'original' axis of rotation, has to be parallel to the 'new' axis (i.e. the axis which you want the answer for). You can find a way to do this for each of the rods, e.g. compare $BC$ to $DE$.
