Two uniform solid spheres have the same mass of 3 kg, but one has a radius of 0.25 m while the other has a radius of 0.8 m. Each can rotate about an axis through its center.

(a) What is the magnitude τ of the torque required to bring the smaller sphere from rest to an angular speed of 300 rad/s in 15 s?

(b) What is the magnitude F of the force that must be applied tangentially at the sphere's equator to provide that torque?

(c) What is the corresponding value of τ for the larger sphere?

(d) What is the corresponding value of F for the larger sphere?
