    An electric motor can accelerate a Ferris wheel of moment of inertia I = 22000 kgm^2 from rest to 11.0 rev/min in 12.0 s. When the motor is turned off, friction causes the wheel to slow down from 11.0 to 9.0 rev/min in 10.0 s.
    Determine the torque generated by the motor to bring the wheel to 11.0 rev/min______Nm

    Determine the power that would be needed to maintain this rotational speed. ____W
