Introductory Moment of Inertia and Rotational Kinetic Energy Problem (7:57)
Three 20.0gram masses are 9.4 cm from an axis of rotation and rotating at 152 revolutions per minute. What is the moment of inertia of the threeobject system? The strings holding the masses are of negligible mass. Rotational Kinetic Energy is also solved for and correct units are determined.
