Moment of inertia
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is a rotating body's resistance to angular acceleration or deceleration, equal to the product of the mass and the square of its perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation.

Wherever an equation occurs in translational mechanics involving mass m, there is an equivalent equation in rotational mechanics involving moment of inertia J. The units of moment of inertia are kilogram metres2 (abbreviation kg m2)."
