During normal operation, a computer's hard disk spins at 7200 rpm. If it takes the hard disk 3.7 s to reach this angular velocity starting from rest, what is the average angular acceleration of the hard disk in rad/s2?

2. Relevant equations

Change in Angular Accerlation/ Change in time

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried the above equation but the online homework says the answer is wrong. I'm not sure of what else to do.
