    Check your answer for [itex]\omega t = 90[/itex] degrees and see if your signs are correct. Note: Positive [itex]\omega[/itex] means it rotates counter-clockwise!

    [tex] \theta (t)=\theta(0)+\omega_{0}t+\frac{1}{2}\alpha t^{2} [/tex]
    [tex] \omega (t)=\omega(0)+\alpha t [/tex]

    That's all u have to use...Properly.Pay attention to signs & initial conditions...

    OK.
    Not clear what you did. Use [itex]\omega_f = \omega_i + \alpha t[/itex]; be sure to use proper units for [itex]\omega[/itex].
