What is the rotational kinetic energy of Jupiter? Assume Jupiter is a uniform sphere with a rotational period of 9.81 hr.
The Attempt at a Solution
i found the omega using the equation above and the period given
Then i found the moment of inertia using the equation above as well. Took the mass as 1.898e27 kg. and the radius as 71492000 metres.
I substituted both of these into the equation of rotational kinetic energy and did not get the right answer. any help would be appreciated
