Moment of inertia:

$\overline{){\mathbf{I}}{\mathbf{=}}\mathbf{\sum}_{\mathbf{i}}{{\mathbf{m}}}_{{\mathbf{i}}}{{{\mathbf{r}}}_{{\mathbf{i}}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}}$

r_{i} is the perpendicular distance of the objects from the axis of rotation.

m_{i} is the masses of the object.

On which of the following does the moment of inertia of an object depend?

a) linear speed

b) linear acceleration

c) angular speed

d) angular acceleration

e) total mass

f) shape and density of the object

g) location of the axis of rotation
