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

When a ceiling fan rotating with an angular speed of 2.40 rad/s is turned off, a frictional torque of 0.227 Nm slows it to a stop in 6.65 s. What is the moment of inertia of the fan?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

In almost all of the moment of inertia equations, they involve a radius. there is no radius given in the problem. i tried to use K= 1/2 I w^2. Im really stuck and dont know what to do next.
