    Angular velocity HELP!!

    On a certain game show, contestants spin a wheel when it is their turn. One contestant gives the wheel an initial angular speed of 3.70 rad/s. It then rotates through one-and-one-quarter revolutions and comes to rest on the BANKRUPT space. Through what angle has the wheel turned when its angular speed is 1.50 rad/s?

    ?? rad

    Hint: Assume the angular acceleration is constant and treat this as a kinematics exercise. First figure out the acceleration.
