A pulsar is a rapidly rotating neutron star from which we receive radio pulses with precise synchronization, there being one pulse for each rotation of the star. The period T of rotation is found by measuring the time between pulses. At present, the pulsar in the central region of the Crab nebula has a period of rotation of T = 0.033s, and this is observed to be increasing at a rate of 1.26*10^-5 seconds per year. What is the value of the angular acceleration in rad/s^2?
TL;DR: T= 0.033s, T is increasing at a rate of 0.0000126s/year. Angular acceleration = ?
