Rotational Kinetic Energy: Work, Energy, and Power

The rotational kinetic energy is the kinetic energy due to the rotation of an object and is part of its total kinetic energy.

Moment of Inertia

The moment of inertia is a property of a mass that measures its resistance to rotational acceleration about one or more axes.
