Problem 10.6: Determine angular acceleration of the wheel

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

A grinding wheel is rotating at constant speed when an object makes contact with the outer edge as shown in the animation (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). Friction causes the wheel to stop. What is the angular acceleration of the wheel? Restart.
