A machine shop grinding wheel accelerates from rest with a constant angular acceleration of 2.5 rad/s^2 for 7.1s and is then brought to rest with a constant angular acceleration of -4.1rad/s^2
what is the total elapsed time?
\[\omega = \alpha t \] where alpha = 2.5 and t = 7.1 find omega. use in: \[-\omega = -4.1t \] find t total time is 7.1 seconds + t
@Fellowroot why do you take a root to find t?
the equation doesn't contain t^2
