## Homework Statement

Find angular acceleration in deg/sec^2 given the following factors:

- Total mass: 4889 kg

- Moment of inertia: 4620 kg*m^2

- Moment arm length from center of mass: 1.5 meters

- Force on moment arm tangent to mass: 1779 newtons

## Homework Equations

torque = force * moment arm length

torque = 1779 newtons * 1.5 meters

torque = 2668.5 newton-meters

angular acceleration = torque / moment of inertia

## The Attempt at a Solution

angular acceleration = 2668.5 N-m / 4620 kg*m^2

angular acceleration = 0.576 radians/sec^2 = 33.05 degrees/sec^2

Is this right?
