Unformatted text preview: rotational mass or moment of inertia of the rigid body, I ≡ Σ i m i r i ⊥ 2 (discrete system) I = ∫ r ⊥ 2 dm (continuous system) Often I is found by the parallelaxis theorem . The kinetic energy is given the name rotational kinetic energy, K rot = ½ I ϖ 2 . EXAMPLES[in class]...
