Angular acceleration:

$\overline{){\mathbf{a}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{d}{\mathbf{\omega }}_{\mathbf{z}}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{t}\mathbf{\right)}}{\mathbf{d}\mathbf{t}}}$

$\mathbit{a}\mathbf{=}\frac{\mathbf{d}}{\mathbf{d}\mathbf{t}}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbit{\gamma }\mathbf{-}\mathbit{\beta }{\mathbit{t}}^{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{\right)}$
