Angular Momentum

  1. Dec 8, 2003 #1
    If an object undergoes an angular momentum increase, its inertia is increased. I am trying to understand what part of its intertia is increased. As I understand it inertia and mass are directly related, and I don't think that an object that undergoes angular acceleration has a mass increase. Is the increase in inertia soley rotational? If anyone could give me any insight on this it would be considered very helpful.
