The speed of a point on a rotating turntable, which is 0.264 m from the center, changes at a constant rate from rest to 0.902 m/s in 1.94 s.
At t1 = 0.64 s, find the magnitude of the tangential acceleration.
Answer in units of m/s2

I assumed the velocity was constant so i divided .902/the time .64 to get acceleration at that time =1.41m/s^2 but this was incorrect...what am i doing wrong???
