Rotating initially at 1800 rpm, a wheel with a diameter of 74.0 cm is brought to rest in 11.0 s. Calculate the magnitude of its angular acceleration in radians/second^2

  • Physics - ,

    The wheel radius makes no difference. They want an ANGULAR acceleration (or, in this case, deceleration) rate.

    So, convert 1800 rpm to radians/s (which you surely know how to do) and divide the result by 11.0 seconds.

    You should strictly put a minus sign in front of the number, to indicate deceleration.

    so do you not need the diameter for anything?

  • Physics - ,

    If you don't need the radius, you don't need the diameter
