A simple wheel has the form of a solid cylinder of radius r with a mass m uniformly distributed throughout its volume. The wheel is pivoted on a stationary axle through the axis of the cylinder and rotates about the axle at a constant angular speed. The wheel rotates n full revolutions in a time interval .(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Express your answer in terms of m, r , n ,t and, pi .

does anyone have any pointers for me?

i do know that this formula, 1/2mr^2 can help me, but i dont know how create the right equation using the other arts given to me.
