1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A cyclist accelerates from rest at a rate of 1.10 m/s2. How fast will a point on the rim of the tire (diameter = 79.7 cm) at the top be moving after 3.10 s?

2. The attempt at a solution:

i just tried this one...

a_avereage= Δw/Δt so a_avereage= ( w_2 - w_1 ) / Δt

if we set for w_2 we get w_2 = W_1 + (a_avereage)(Δt)

with w_1=0 the response for w_2 is 1.358 rad/s but that was wrong

can anyone help me how to ge the velocity of the wheel at the top t 3.10 s?
