Angular acceleration
posted by Jim (BIGEYE) .
A flywheel of 480 mm diameter is accelerated with an angular velocity of 0.4 rad/s^2 from rest by an electric motor until it is rotating at 400 revs/minute. Calculate:
a) the time of acceleration
b) the linear speed of the rim of the flywheel
My answer for (a) is 104.7 secs, and for (b) is 10 m/s.
Appreciate if someone could check these answers if correct. If wrong, can they point me in the right direction.
TIA
Final angular speed = (angular acceleration) * time
400 rpm = 41.89 rad/s = (ang. acc.) * t
t = 104.7 s
final linear speed = R * (final angular speed) = [(0.48 m)/2]*41.89 rad/s = 10.05 m/s, but it is OK to show two significant figures, (10 m/s)
Thanks for that.
