Er = la = l(w^2 - w0^2)/2*theta
this is for Torque i believe
A CD has a mass of 17 g and a radius of 6.0 cm. When inserted into a player, the CD starts from rest and accelerates to an angular velocity of 18 rad/s in 0.70 s. Assuming the CD is a uniform solid disk, determine the net torque acting on it.
i could convert 17 to kg if i needed to.
i know the angular velocity starts at 0.
and the final angular velocity is 18.
if i use angular kinematics i can use theta f = theta i + 1/2(wi + wf) * t
to get theta f = 6.3
so i'm not sure why this does not work: radius = 6 ... 6 x 2 = 12 cm (diameter)
so then, 12(18^2 + 0^2)/ 2*(6.3)
I got 308.57 N*m and that is not correct.
