ConceptPhysical Significance of M.I (Moment of Inertia)

Question

A body starts rotating from rest. Due to a couple of 20 Nm it completes 60 revolutions in one minute. Find the moment of inertia of the body.

Solution

T = 20 N m, n = 60 revolutions in 60 s = 1 r.p.s., t = 1 min = 60 s
Moment of inertia (I) = ?

Angular displacement θ = ωt = 2πnt
= 2π × 1 × 60
= 120 π rad ∴ Moment of inertia of the body is 95.48 kg m2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
