    how to work out "frictional torque" and "resisting motion"

    Hi there,
    if I have a scenario were a Mass is suspended from a flywheel. If the mass is released from rest and falls a distance in an amount of time.

    how would i work out the
    frictional torque
    and resisting motion

    does anyone know what formulas i would need.

    help would be much appreciated

    thanks a lot
