# Spinning up a DVD

A DVD player can exert a torque on a DVD of $$10^{-3}~\mbox{N} \cdot \mbox{m}$$. What is the DVD’s angular acceleration in $$\mbox{rad/s}^2$$?

Details and assumptions

• The DVD has a mass of $$0.015~\mbox{kg}$$ and a radius of $$0.06~\mbox{m}$$.
• A DVD can be modeled as a thin, uniform cylinder.
