## Homework Statement

In a lab we conducted in class we graphed angular acceleration vs torque, and found a positive linear correlation-easy enough. However I am getting rather stuck in simplifying the units of slope in terms of Kg, m, and s... I am fairly sure this will give me that angular acceleration equals torque times inertia but I have trouble with simplifying the slope AND with even getting torque and angular acceleration simplified to kg m and s. I would really appreciate some help! thanks!!

## Homework Equations

Torque=NM

NM=Kg*a*m

kg*a*m=kg*(m/s^2)*m

=kg*m^2/s^2

Angular Acceleration= rad/s^2

rad/s^2=at/r

at/r=m/s^2/r

m^2/s^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

(kg*m^2/s^2)/(m^2/s^2)

=kg
