I have a cylinder that is attached to an actuator. I know the moment of inertia, how do I find the minimum required torque?(without any external forces)

Is this info I would use to determine the Torque? (WK~2)DeltaN
and Open Calculator Where:

For constant acceleration
T=WK^2(2pi)N/60gt g=32.2ft/sec^2 You forgot the g. Always check your units when you do this kind of a problem
