I have a shaft with radius "r" running at a certain RPM. how can i determine the angular acceleration of the shaft. Do i need any other parameters as well? Can i say that the angular acceleration can be (w^2*r), w is the angular velocity, r being the radius.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

thanks
