OP has been reminded that they need to show their work when posting schoolwork questions

Homework Statement


How much torque is needed to change the speed of spinning rate of a 3.50 kg sphere with a radius of 7.50 m from 900. rpm to 200. rpm in 3.0 s? [-1924  -1.92 x 103 Nm]

Homework Equations


t = I * α
I = (2/5)mr^2
t = F * r

The Attempt at a Solution


just cant get a crack at it.[/B]

Actually, it's very easy.
You really just have to calculate the moment of inertia and, after that, determine the angular acceleration needed to slow the spinning rate from 900 to 200 rpm. First, convert rpm to rads/s. Angular acceleration equals change in angular velocity divided by change in time. As you said, torque equals moment of inertia times angular acceleration.
