1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The 9.65 lb uniform disk is pin supported at its center and is acted upon by a constant force of P = 1.45 lb as shown. The system starts from rest. Radius of disk is .470 ft

The force P is going straight down from the disk and would spin the disk in a clockwise direction. The force P is at the end of a string.. making the disk spin.

Determine the angular velocity after 4.45 seconds. (rad/s, +CCW)

2. Relevant equations

I know this problem involves a constant accel equation. I believe the right one is angvelfinal = angvelinitial + a*t

3. The attempt at a solution

The issue i have is that i can't figure out how to relate the force acting on the disk to turn it into acceleration. I have tried setting "Force*Radius=(.5*Mass*radius^2)angaccel" and solving for angaccel and then multiplying it by the time in order to get my angvel but i am having no luck. Any help i appreciated.
