(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 2.0-kg block starts from rest on the positive x axis 3.0 m from the origina and thereafter has an acceleration given by a = 4i-3j. The torque, relative to the origin acting on it at the end of 2.0 s is:

2. Relevant equations

linear acceleration= (radius)(angular acceleration)

torque= (moment of Inertia)(angular acceleration)

3. The attempt at a solution

I found the angular acceleration using the formula above

moment of Inertia=(mass)(radius square)

Then find the torque using the formula above

that's not it....help!...
