1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
angular acceleration of line a= 2w^2 rad/s when theta=pi/6, w= 10 rad/s what is angular velocity when theta= pi/3? 2. Relevant equations chain rule 3. The attempt at a solution w= e^2theta is my answer, but I know this is wrong I know that this question is really easy, but I just don't know how to get it

Well you should know that α= 2ω^{2} means that dω/dt = 2ω^{2}
which is an easily solvable DE once you 'separate the variables' i.e. put all the things with ω on one side and t on the other then integrate both sides.

But then I end up with t=1/2w, how do I find the rest of the answer?

Yes, that was my problem all along... I forgot to add the constant!! Thanks.
