Hi guys, im really stumped by this 1st yr Dynamics question, and would appreciate any help on how to approach the question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

Torque equations and Force equations

Moment of inertia for disc rotating around centre: (mr^2)/2

After using parallel axis theorem, the I about the edge is I = (3/2)mr^2

Thank you,

Aralox
