**angular acceleration of a fan!**

## Homework Statement

An electric fan is turned off, and its angular velocity decreases uniformly from 500 rev/min to 200 rm rev/min in 4.00 s.

Find the angular acceleration in rev/s and the number of revolutions made by the motor in the 4.00 interval.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I got -1.25 for alpha in rev/sec^2, which is correct.

How come the number of revolutions isn't 5 revolutions?

(alpha) (time)=

(-1.25)(4 sec)=5 rev (-5) rev
