## Main Question or Discussion Point

Everyone that's taken basic physics know that the kinetic energy of a spinning object with no translational velocity is

KE=(1/2)Iw^2.

where I is the moment of mass and w is the angular velocity. I've been trying to find a similiar formula incorporating special relativity but the math is more challenging than I thought. Does anybody have an answer to this?
