A compact disc (CD), initially at rest, reaches an angular speed of 40 rad/s in 5.0 s.
a. What is the magnitude of its angular acceleration?
b. How many revolutions does the CD make in 5.0 s?

  • physics -

    a. acceleration = speed / time ... 40 / 5.0

    b. (average speed) * time
    ...[(0 + 40)/2] * 5.0

  • physics -

    b. 40rad/s * 1rev/6.28rad * 5s = 31.85 rev.
