# I cant seem to get this angular velocity problem right

#### xxxixpats

Code:
A small rubber wheel (radius of 2.60 cm) is used to drive a large pottery wheel (radius of 33.00 cm), and they are mounted so that their circular edges touch. If the small wheel accelerates at the rate of 7.10 rad/s2, and there is no slipping, what is the angular acceleration of the large pottery wheel?

Then the second part of the equation says

Code:
In the above problem, what is the time taken for the pottery wheel to reach the required speed of 72 rpm?
I simply used the equation

w=w0+at
- W0 would cancle leaving the formula

W=at

7.54/.6 = 12.5667 s

This seems right but it keeps telling me im wrong

Your angular acceleration is a little off. How many significant figures do you actually need?

not really sure all it posted was 1, I redid the problem and got it write
