**1. Homework Statement**

A flywheel with a radius of 0.300 m starts from rest and accelerates with a constant angular acceleration of 0.600 rad/s^2.

a)Compute the magnitude of the tangential acceleration, the radial acceleration, and the resultant acceleration of a point on its rim at the start.

b)Compute the magnitude of the tangential acceleration, the radial acceleration, and the resultant acceleration of a point on its rim after it has turned through 60.0 degrees.

**2. Homework Equations**

A_tan=alpha*r

A_resultant=sqrt(A_tan^2+A_rad^2)

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

For part a) I used A_tan=alpha*r to get A_tan and A_rad is always the same (given), and for the A_resultant I used A_resultant=sqrt(A_tan^2+A_rad^2)

I have a feeling that I'm not finding the A_tangential right.
