What is the angular momentum of a 3.7kg uniform cylindrical grinding wheel of radius 25cm when rotating at 1500rpm? How much torque(in magnitude) is required to stop it in 5.0s? Could you explain this in detail, I don't really understand torque and momentum well.

**Calculus (Momentum and Force)**

The change in the momentum of an object ( p) is given by the force, F, acting on the object multiplied by the time interval that the force was acting: p = F t . If the force (in newtons) acting on a particular object is given by F(t)=cost , whats the total change in ...
