Unformatted text preview: Multiply by r: So torque = (mr 2 )aTorque = I(angular acceleration)I = mass x (distance from rotation axis) 2Torque = m x r x sin(theta) The answer to the first quiz is b) reason for is when you take t(m x r x sin(theta)) and make it equal to (mr 2 ) x angular acceleration and result in angular acceleration = g*sin(theta) / r...
