The angular position of a point on the rim of a rotating wheel is given by theta = 4* t - 3* t^2 + t^3, where theta is in radians if t is given in seconds.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

find the angular velocities as t = 1 and t = 5.5

i plugged the numbers into the given equation to get 2 and 97.625

then i divided by the time to get 2 and 17.75 but both of these are wrong. what am i forgetting?
