**MathMate**, Saturday, November 28, 2009 at 5:24pmThe rotational kinetic energy of a spinning sphere is given by

K = (1/2)Iω²

where

K=kinetic energy due to rotation

I=moment of inertia about the rotation axis

ω = angular velocity

The moment of inertia of a sphere spinning about an axis passing through its centre, I is

I=(2/5)mr²

Where m=mass of the sphere,

and r=radius of sphere.

Calculate K.
