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

So I worked out a problem where a uniform disk with 3 forces being applied. I found the correct net torque acting on the disk. Now the problem is asking me to find the angular acceleration.

2. Relevant equations

r= I*(ang.acc^)^{2}

3. The attempt at a solution

I made the assumption that you could use this formula. Plug the net torque in and calculate the moment of inertia and solve. Is this true?
