[SOLVED] Angular velocity

Homework Statement



The angular acceleration of a flywheel of a generator is given by

a(t) = 6bt - 12ct2

What is the angular velocity at t when the initial velocity is w0?


The Attempt at a Solution



w = w0 + at = w0 + 6bt2 - 12ct3


This is wrong according to my book. Can't I use the same equations for angular motion as for linear motion?

The equation you have written is for solving angular velocity when the angular acceleration is constant.
