## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am working on a project where i need to determine the angular acceleration from known linear acceleration. I have given it a try please let me know if its the correct approach.

Linear acceleration = 70 G's (70x9.8 mts/sec2)

Radius of cylinder = 0.203 mts

Rotation of cylinder along center = [tex]\pi[/tex]/2

Angular acceleration = (70*9.8) (mts/sec2)/(0.203 mts) *([tex]\pi[/tex]/2)

= 5305 rad/sec2

Please confirm if my calculation is correct.
