I missed a week of school so I'm a bit behind, i do have a book so i need just a bit of guidance. Any extra help would be appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question Part 1

The flywheel of a steam engine runs with a constant angular speed of 115 rev/min. When steam is shut off, the friction of the bearings and the air (assumed constant) brings the wheel to rest in 2.20 hours. How many rotations does the wheel make before coming to rest?

Part 2

Consider a particle that is located at a distance of 37.0 centimeters from the axis of rotation when the flywheel is turning at 0.390 rev/min. What is the magnitude of the net linear acceleration of this particle?
