# Moment of Inertia Calculation

Moment of inertia, also called mass moments of inertia or the angular mass, (SI units kg m^{2}) is a measure of an object resistance to changes in its rotation rate. It is the rotational analog of mass. When you calculate the moments of inertia you actually measure how far the material in a cross-section of an element is from its neutral axis.

#### Formula Used:

Moment of inertia = M * D^{2}
**Where,**
M = Angular Mass of the Hollow material
D = Distance between axis and rotation
In simple terms, moments of inertia. A measure of a body's resistance to angular acceleration, equal to the product of the mass of a particle and the square of its distance from a reference.
