Two thin rectangular sheets (0.06 m 0.52 m) are identical. In the first sheet the axis of rotation lies along the 0.06 m side, and in the second it lies along the 0.52 m side. The same torque is applied to each sheet. The first sheet, starting from rest, reaches its final angular velocity in 8.5 s. How long does it take for the second sheet, starting from rest, to reach the same angular velocity?

You have to calcuate the moments of inertia for the thin sheets, or look them up.

Angular velocity= alpha*time calculate alpha for the sheet, then torque from torque= I alpha

Then work on the second sheet. I will be happy to critique your work or thinking.
