How much torque is required to stop it in 4.0 s?

- Physics -
**drwls**, Friday, December 11, 2009 at 2:13amConvert 1800 rpm to radians per second and call it w. (It texts, it's usually a Greek lower case omega)

The angular momentum is I w, where I is the moment of inertia. Use units of kg m^2/s

For a solid cylinder of mass M and radius R, I = (1/2) M R^2.

The torque L required to stop in time T is I w/T. The units will be newton meters or kg m^2/s^2 (same thing)
