Definition of Area Moment Of Inertia:

Area Moment Of Inertia also known as the Second Moment of Area, is a geometrical property of an area which measures how its points are distributed about an arbitrary axis. Its unit of dimension is length of fourth power, L^4, and should not be confused with the Mass Moment of Inertia. Where, for a thin piece of material, the Mass Moment of Inertia is equivalanet to the Area Density times the Area Moment of Inertia.
