[tex]\alpha = \frac{\Delta \omega}{\Delta t} = \frac{120\textrm{rev/min} - 150\textrm{rev/min}}{1/3\textrm{min}} = -90 \frac{\textrm{rev}}{\textrm{min}^2}[/tex]

where the negative rate makes sense as it's slowing down. Now, to compute the time it takes to come to a stop, assume it's angular position and time is 0 after then end of that first 20 seconds. Then,

[tex]\omega = \omega_0 + \alpha t \implies 0 = 120\frac{\textrm{rev}}{\textrm{min}} + -90\frac{\textrm{rev}}{\textrm{min}^2}t \implies t=\frac{120\frac{\textrm{rev}}{\textrm{min}}}{-90\frac{\textrm{rev}}{\textrm{min}^2}} \implies t=1.\overline{3} \textrm{min}[/tex]

Now, if it takes [itex]1.\overline{3}[/itex]minutes to stop from an initial angular velocity of 120 rev/min at a constant acceleration of -90 rev/min/min, then how many revoutions will it take to stop?

Nope,it's wrong.The last 2n3 lines of your document are wrong.Using these special units (revolutions/minute) will defintely enable u to get to the answer right away.That's because the result for [itex] \theta [/itex] is the final answer,as it already put in terms of revolutions.Atually the angle is 80revolutions*2\pi radians/revolution approx 500 radians.

So the final answer to yor question is 80 revolutions.This is the number the problem is waiting from u.
