Kinetic energy of rotation (Rotational kinetic energy)

We already have discussed the kinetic energy of an object and the related facts. A body can have two types of kinetic energies – Translational kinetic energy and Rotational kinetic energy. In this article, we are going to be more specific. Here, we are to explain the rotational kinetic energy i.e. the kinetic energy of … Read more

Formula for moment of Inertia of different shapes

The term Moment of inertia in physics arises in case of the rotational motion of an object. Moment of inertia has the same mathematical role in rotational motion as that of mass in linear motion. But physical significance of the moment of inertia is different from that of the mass of an object. In this … Read more
