 Homework Statement:

An object is undergoing circular motion in horizontal plane at fixed radius## r = 0.12m##
Radial acceleration is ##2+2t ##m/s
Calculate arc length the object swept through the first 2 seconds.
 Relevant Equations:
 
From what I understand,
##a_{r} = v_{tan}^2 /r##
##a_{r} = (r\omega)^2 /r##
##a_{r} = r\omega^2##
##\omega^2 = \frac{a_{r}}{r}##
##\omega^2 = \frac{2+2t}{0.12}##
##\omega = \sqrt{\frac{2+2t}{0.12}}##
##s =\int_{0}^{2} \sqrt{\frac{2+2t}{0.12}}##
After integrating, I still can't seem to get the correct answer which is 1.37m
Are my concepts wrong or..?
Thanks
