Name the factor on which moment of inertia of a body depends

Moment of inertia is defined as the quantity expressed by the body resisting angular acceleration which is the sum of the product of the mass of every particle with its square of a distance from the axis of rotation.

Factors that affect the moment of inertia

The moment of inertia depends on the following factors,

  • The density of the material
  • Shape and size of the body
  • Axis of rotation (distribution of mass relative to the axis)
