Question: How do I find the center of mass and moment of inertia of a truncated ellipsoid?

For example for an ellipsoid with principal axes 3, 2 and 1 along the x, y and z coordinate axes respectively, with center at the origin and truncated at x equals 1.

What math will reveal its center of mass and its moment of inertia for an axis of revolution through the center of mass and parallel to the y axis?
