Angular Acceleration of a Moving Wheel

  1. Feb 13, 2007 #1
    I am having a bit of trouble with the following problem. What should I do to start?

    A cyclist starts from rest and pedals so that the wheels make 8.5 revolutions in the first 4.6 s. What is the angular acceleration of the wheels (assumed constant)?

    Welcome to the forums underoathP,

    For future reference we have https://www.physicsforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=152" in place for such questions. With respect to your question, you are required to show some effort in solving the problem yourself, before we can help you. Perhaps if you could tell me what you have attempted or any ideas about how you could solve the problem...
