Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I haven't studied rotational physics in a long time so this may be a stupid question, but here goes. I'm trying to model the properties of a turntable (record player). Using the theories of rotational motion, is it possible to calculate the time it would take for the spinning turntable platter to come to a complete stop when the power to the motor is cut?

Given that I know the starting velocity is 33 rpm, the final velocity is 0rpm and the weight of the platter is 1.996kg is it possible to calculate the time it takes to come to a complete stop?

Thanks for you help!
