Formula name

ROTATION

Description

energy of rotation

Syntax

E = (1/2) * J * ω^2
/* The moment of inertia J of a cylinder rotating around his axis is J = m/2 * r^2 , where m means the mass and r the radius of the cylinder. So the rotational energy of a cylinder will be : */
ErotCyl = m/4 * (r*ω)^2

Notes

The kinetic energy of a rotating mass is proportional to its moment of inertia relative to the axis of rotation. ω stands for the angular velocity of the rotation.
