The angular speed of an automobile engine is increased at a constant rate from 1500 rev/min to 3900 rev/min in 14 s.

(A) What is its angular acceleration in revolutions per minute-squared?

(B) How many revolutions does the engine make during this 14 s interval?

2. Relevant equations

I found out (A) to be 10285.71429 rev/min^2, but I have no idea how to do (B). would have to find tangential velocity or do i have enough information already?

3. The attempt at a solution

for (A), i used the formula [tex]\alpha[/tex] = [tex]\Delta[/tex][tex]\omega[/tex] / time

so (3900rev/min - 1500rev/min)/14,

and this was 10285.71420rev/min^2

i just don't know how to start (B)..
