(a) Calculate the kinetic energy that the earth has because of its rotation about its own axis. Assume that the earth is a uniform sphere and that its path around the sun is circular. For comparison, the total energy used in the United States in one year is about 9.33e9 Joules...

Inertia
The moment of Inertia about the center of a thin rod of length L is .. I=1/12 M L^2 Here the length is a/4, mass is M/4 I=1/12 (M/4)(a^2/16) or you can calculate that. Now, the Parallel axis theorm, the displacement is 1/2 a side, or a/8 The new I is I=Icm + Mass*d^2 = above I...

This entirely depends on your definition of inertial. If by inertia you mean mass, the answer is obvious. Most in science mean mass when inertia is used, but sometimes the meaning is different.

Compute the moment of inertia of each disc using the formula I = (1/2) M R^2 For example, for the initially rotating disc, I1 = (1/2)(1.6)(0.63)^2 = 0.318 kg m^2 I2 = (1/2)(0.46)(0.38)^2 = ____? Then apply the law of conservation of angular momentum in this form: I1*w1 = (I1...

acceleration depends on force, and the amount of inertia. On the rock with twice the force, it also has twice the inertia. a=F/m

it is the first law of motion because inertia is acting on the toy truck is experiencing inertia. Newton's first law is called the law of inertia.
