I've been trying to do this question in the text book, but I can't seem to get the answer.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Emilie's potter's whel rotates with a constant 2.25 rad/s^2 angular acceleration. After 4 seconds the wheel has rotated through an angle of 60.0 rad. What was hte angular velocty of the wheel at the beginning of the 4.00 second interval.

I thought I could use a = (w2-w1)/ (t2-t1), but I end up with 6 as my answer, which is incorrect.

Thank you in advance.
