    Angular Acceleration

    Need help with the following:

    A classic 1957 Chevrolet Corvette mass 1240 starts from rest and speeds up with a constant tangential acceleration of 3.00 on a circular test track of radius 60.0 . Treat the car as a particle.

    Questions:

    What is its angular acceleration?

    What is its angular speed 6.00 after it starts?

    What is its radial acceleration at this time?

    angular acceleration α = tangential acceleration/radius.
    Use kinematic equation to find the angular speed after 6.0 s.
