Newton’s Second Law for a Rotating Object ! The angular acceleration is directly proportional to the net torque ! The angular acceleration is inversely proportional to the moment of inertia of the object
Moment of Inertia ! The angular acceleration is inversely proportional to the analogy of the mass in a rotating system ! This mass analog is called the moment of inertia, I, of the object ! SI units are kg m 2

More About Moment of Inertia ! There is a major difference between moment of inertia and mass: the moment of inertia depends on the quantity of matter and its distribution in the rigid object. ! The moment of inertia also depends upon the location of the axis of rotation

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
