A gyroscope flywheel of radius 3.33 cm is accelerated from rest at 13.4 rad/s2 until its angular speed is 2760 rev/min.
(a) What is the tangential acceleration of a point on the rim of the flywheel during this spin-up process?
m/s2
(b) What is the radial acceleration of this point when the flywheel is spinning at full speed?
m/s2
(c) Through what distance does a point on the rim move during the spin-up?
m

i've been trying to answer these for hours and still have no clue. Help is appreciated.
