Homework Equations


L=Iω=(mr^2)ω

The Attempt at a Solution


r=.026m
m=1.8 kg
ω=600rpm*(1minute/60seconds)*(2pi radians/1rotation) = 62.83 rad/sec

L=(1.8kg * .026m^2) * 62.83 rad/sec = .076 (kg*m^2/s). I think this is correct, but my online quiz says that the answer is .038. What am I doing wrong?
