Formula: Rigid body
Angular Momentum and Angular Velocity of a Disk

Rotational energy

Unit
The rotational energy is the part of the energy that a rigid (non-deformable) body has when it rotates around an axis.

Angular velocity

Unit
The angular velocity indicates the angle traveled per time.

Moment of inertia

Unit
Moment of inertia depends on the mass and distance from the axis of rotation and acts like a resistance to rotation.
