Question: While repairing his bicycle a student turns it upside down

While repairing his bicycle, a student turns it upside down and sets the front wheel spinning at 2.00 rev/s. Assume the wheel has a mass of 3.25 kg and all of the mass is located on the rim, which has a radius of 41.0 cm. To slow the wheel, he places his hand on the tire, thereby exerting a tangential force of friction on the wheel. It takes 3.50 s to come to rest. Use the change in angular momentum to determine the force he exerts on the wheel. Assume the frictional force of the axle is negligible.
