Basically, I am looking to create a simple physics game in flash for my game design course called "spin the banana" where the player sets the force which is then applied to the banana (imagining the banana is just a disk-shaped object to keep it simple) taking into account the friction and the size of the banana (radius of the disk?).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm competent with numbers when given an equation to work with so I just need an equation or set of equations to help me work out the rotation of a spinning object using the friction, size of object and force (and anything else I may need to add in to complete the equations).

Thanks for any help.
