I would like someone to confirm, comment on my understanding of torque calculations of a rotating body.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Formula: [tex]T[/tex]=[tex]I[/tex][tex]\alpha[/tex]

[tex]I[/tex]=LB-FT^{2}(1366.5) Known

[tex]\alpha[/tex]=Rad/s^{2}(43.33)

Angular acceleration from 600-0 RPM in 1.45 sec

Now I believe I need to divide by 32.2 ft/s^{2}(accelleration of gravity)

This should give me FT-Lbs torque required to (stop) 1366.5 inertia in 1.45 sec.

Please confirm that this is correct with units.

Thank You

Ron
