I need help with this problem.

A ceiling fan is turned on and a net torque of 2.0 Nm is applied to the blades. The blades have a total moment of inertia of 0.24 kgm2. What is the angular acceleration of the blades in rad/s2?

The formula is well known:

Torque= momentof inertia* angular acceleration.
