I found this question in my textbook but the solution is not stated. A force of 2 N vertically down is applied to a vertical disc at a distance 2 cm to the right (horizontally) of the centre of the disc. The disc has a mass of 1.2 kg and a radius of 15 cm. Its initial angular velocity is 2 rad.s-1 anticlockwise.

How long does it take to come to a (momentary) stop?

I took a crack at it but is it correct?.

I=(mr^2)/2, I=[1.2x(15/100)^2]2. Then the value for I is substituted to F=Ia, where 2=value for Ixa, where a is found, and then substitute for a=w/t. So a is substituted=2/t and t is found.

Is this o.k?
