I am having a very hard time with this problem! Even my teacher had trouble with it(of course we are still expected to have it done on our homework!)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2 doors are uniform and identical. Door A rotates about an axis to its left edge and door B rotates about an axis through the center. The same force F is applied perpendicular to each door at its right edge and the force remains perpendicular to as the door turns. Starting from rest, door A rotates through a certain angle in 3.00s. How long does it take door B to rotate through the same angle.

So I got as far as 1/3ML^2(alpha)=1/12M(L/2)^2(alpha) and then I get stuck on how o make time fit in. I have been looking at all the equations for rotational motion, but I don't know which one????
