I am in process of building a set up where i will be using a pendulum to impact a cylinder to generate angular acceleration. I started from basic physics for a answer and found the following method but doesn't seem to go any where from here. Please provide guidance.

Torque = Moment of Inertia X Angular Acceleration

So, Angular Acceleration = Torque/Moment of Inertia

where

Torque = Force x length = mass of pendulum x acceleration due to gravity x length of pendulum

Moment of Inertia = Mass x Lenght^2 = mass of pendulum x length of pendulum^2
