Physics in LEGO Mindstorms: Energy Accumulation and Conservation. Part 2. Moment of Intertia

Introducing three main concepts - Energy, Inertia Moment and Angular Velocity. We describe what is the moment of Inertia, how do we calculate it and how do we measure it?

The Moment of Inertia gives you an understanding of how difficult it is to stop an object once it is moving/rotating or to start moving/rotating an object once it has stopped. You can give it a value and this value depends on the weight and the speed of the object.
