(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have a plot whose vertical intercept is 0.00352 [Nm]

If the bearings are 2 [mm] from the center of the wheel,

then what is the force of friction?

Use three significant figures for your answer in Newtons.

2. Relevant equations

Torque= (Rotational Inertia)(Angular Acceleration)+ Torque due to friction

3. The attempt at a solution

Torque=0.00352Nm

Torque due to friction = (Rotational Inertia)(Angular Acceleration) - Torque

Tf= (I)*(A)-0.00352Nm

I don't even know how to attempt to solve for those other variables. Is this even the right equation to use?
