Homework Help: Torque Question

  1. Dec 10, 2005 #1
    Can anyone help me with this question? Thank-you


    An object rotates with a constant angular velocity. Can there be a net torque acting on the object? Why?

    no-

    [tex] \Sigma T=I\alpha [/tex]

    if there is a net torque on the object, there will be an angular acceleration.
