Quick Reference

Energy stored in a spinning system. Rotational energy depends on both the moment of inertia and angular velocity, and is given by: rotational energy = 1/2Iw2, where I = the moment of inertia of the object about an axis through the centre of gravity of the system, and w = the angular velocity of the system about an axis through the centre of gravity of the system.
