Angular speed and revolutions question.

  1. Jan 29, 2007 #1
    I've attached the problem as an image. I solved 20 and 21 very easily. For 22, my obvious instinct was to set dtheta/dt to 0, but that's an unsolvable equation. I'm obviously missing something key in solving 22. What is it?

    obviously, your obvious instinct is not pointing you to the right direction....

    Try to set up a definite integral with appropiate limit.... (what is time t equal to when the wheel coming to rest?)
