## Homework Statement

A wheel, with circumference 0.6 m and moment of inertial 43 kg m2 about its center, rotates about a frictionless axle with angular velocity 13 radians per second. A brake is applied which supplies a constant force to a point on the perimeter of the wheel of 9 N, tangent to the wheel and opposing the motion. How many revolutions will the wheel make before coming to rest?

## Homework Equations

KE

_{rotational}=I*Omega

^{2}

Torque=I*alpha

I=M*R

^{2}

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm lost at how to start this problem, I tried to get the deceleration caused by the 9N force applied on the wheel by Newton's Second Law but I couldn't get the mass, so i used the I=M*R

^{2}equation to get the mass and then used F=M*a to find the deceleration, took that answer and divided by 2pi to find the revolutions, but the answer was off. What am I missing?
