Physics help please!!!

The angular speed of digital video discs (DVDs) varies with whether the inner or outer part of the disc is being read. (CDs function in the same way.) Over a 133 min playing time, the angular speed varies from 570 rpm to 1600 rpm. Assuming it to be constant, what is the angular acceleration (in rad/s2) of such a DVD?

  • Physics help please!!! -

    angular acceleration= (wf-wi)/timeinseconds

    change rpm to rad/sec

    570rpm*2PIrad/rev*1min/60sec.

  • Physics help please!!! -

    so 570rpm*2pirad = 3581.415625
    i divide that with rev*1min/60 sec == 59.69 is that correct ??
