The combination of an applied force and a frictional force produces a constant torque of 34 N.m on a wheel rotating about a fixed axis. The applied force acts for 9.1s, during which time the angular speed of the wheel increases from 0 to 16 rad/s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a)What is the moment of inertia of the wheel?

If the applied force is removed, the wheel comes to a stop in 73s.

b)What is the frictional torque?

c)How many revolutions does the wheel make during the entire 82s interval?
