What Is the Formula That Is Used to Calculate Rotational Inertia Units?


Quick Answer

The formula used to determine inertia is "I= mr²," where "I" is the rotational inertia unit, "m" is the mass of a single point of movement and "r" is the distance of that point from the axis of rotation. The accepted way to say the formula is "kilogram meter squared."

Isaac Newton is responsible for the formulation of the three laws of motion, the first of which is the law of inertia and mass. Newton's three laws of motion were published in his book "Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy" in 1687. Now commonly referred to as "Principia," it is considered one of the most important and influential publications in the history of science and physics.
