Inertia and angular speed after time T

If a spool, initially at rest, has a radius R and a moment of inertia I, what is its angular speed after a time t?

Solution Preview

The angular speed wf after time t is related to the original angular speed wo and the angular acceleration a by the equation of motion: (1) wf = wo + a ...

Solution Summary

The solution calculates the angular speed after time i of an object with a radius and moment of inertia given.
