(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Wheel A of radius ra = 8.9 cm is coupled by belt B to wheel C of radius rc = 30.7 cm. Wheel A increases its angular speed from rest at time t = 0 s at a uniform rate of 8.6 rad/s2. At what time will wheel C reach a rotational speed of 93.0 rev/min, assuming the belt does not slip?

2. Relevant equations

2 π rad = 1 Rev

v = vo + at ( constant acc)

3. The attempt at a solution

Wheel A and Wheel C have the same velocity, so I converted the rads to revs and 93 rev/min to 1.55 revs/s and divided the velocity by the acceleration to find the time. But the answer doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong ? Please help !

Thanks
