The flywheel of a steam engine runs with a constant angular speed of 164 rev/min. When steam is shut off, the friction of the bearings and the air brings the wheel to rest in 1.6 h. I found the constant angular acceleration as 1.71rev/min^2.
They also ask you to find What is the magnitude of the tangential component of the linear acceleration of a particle that is located at a distance of 44 cm from the axis of rotation when the flywheel is turning at 82.0 rev/min?
I tried everything but cant gwt the right answer.
