These are kind of my own thoughts. Does the theory of relativity disagree with any of these?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When a spinning disc is heated, the spinning rate decreases, and spinning energy is being converted into additional heat.

When a spinning disc is accelerated linearly, the spinning rate decreases, and spinning energy is being converted into additional linear kinetic energy.
