A 51.0 kg uniform solid cylinder has a radius of .392m. If the cylinder accelerates at 9.2*10^-2 rad/s^2 as it rotates about an axis through the center, how large is the torque acting on the cylinder? Answer in N*m.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

so I plugged into the equation:

T=F*d

so

T=(5.1*(9.2^-2)*.392

T=1.839

that was wrong. If anyone has any ideas what I did wrong and feels like sharing their wisdom, that would be great.
