All None

Rotational Inertia (I)
I=SUM Mi x Ri^2. how difficult it is to get an object to rotate. units=kg x m^2
Kinetic Energy equation
K.E. = 1/2(MM)u^2
hoop: I=MR^2
for continuous objects of uniform density...
Parallel axis theorem
torque is rotational force
T=magnitude F x magnitude R sin theta (dont forget the sign!)
magnitude C=magnitude A x magnitude B sin theta
conservation of mechanical energy
if we are considering gravity, Ki+Ugi=Kf+Ugf
constant torque
means constant acceleration (just like constant force=constant acceleration!)
