A torque of 1.15 N·m is applied to a bicycle wheel of radius 36 cm and mass 0.83 kg. Treating the wheel as a hoop, find its angular acceleration.
?rad/s2

I know accel is alpha times the radius...where does torque tie in?

  • physics help please -

    Torque=momentinertial*angular acceleration

    solve for angular acceleration.
