A uniform disk with a mass of 27.3 kg and a radius of 0.309 m is free to rotate about a frictionless axle. Forces of 90.0 N and 125 N are applied to the disk, as the drawing indicates.
(a) What is the net torque produced by the two forces?
(b) What is the angular acceleration of the disk?
The drawing is needed to show where and in what directions the forces are applied to the disk.
Compute net torque.
angular acceleration =
(Net Torque)/(Moment of inertia)
