A Ferris wheel rotates at an angular velocity of 0.20 rad/s. Starting from rest, it reaches its operating speed with an average angular acceleration of 0.029 rad/s2. How long does it take the wheel to come up to operating speed?

  • physics -

    (final angular velocity)/(angular acceleration) = 0.20/0.029 = ___ seconds
