Hi there, I have been searching the web for a couple hours now and cannot find an answer to what I thought was a simple question. Say I had an object (to make it simple, let's say this is 2D with no external forces like gravity, friction, or air resistance) and wanted to calculate how fast it would spin when a force is applied at an angle to it's center of gravity.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know the mass of the object, the force coming in, the angle at which the force is applied, and the distance from the center of gravity of the object to where the force is applied. I wish to know how many revolutions per minute the object would turn at after the force is applied.

Thanks for the help.
