The Moment of Inertia or Mass Moment of Inertia is the measure of a body's resistance to change in it's rotational speed. The moment of inertia must be specified with respect to a chosen rotational axis.

The moment of inertia depends on the body's mass distribution and the rotational axis chosen. The larger moment of inertia requiring more torque to change the body's rotational speed.

The same object will have different moment of inertia around different axis. Find more information to understand the meaning of it.
