## Homework Statement

A thin metal disk with mass 2.00E-3kg and radius 2.20cm is attached at its center to a long fiber. The disk, when twisted and released, oscillates with a period of 1.00s. Find the torsion constant of the fiber.

## Homework Equations

a) ω=sqrt(κ/I)

b) f=1/(2π) sqrt(κ/I)

where ω=angular frequency, κ=torsion constant, I=inertia, f=frequency

## The Attempt at a Solution

Is the inertia of this thin disk simply 1/2 MR^2?

Is the angular frequency 2π/1.00s?

and do I simply plug in these variables into eqtn (a) to solve for κ?
