**a)**

Constant angular acceleration equation:

ω_{1} = ω_{0} + αt

A heavy flywheel is accelerated (rotationally) by a motor that provides constant torque and therefore a constant angular acceleration . The flywheel is assumed to be at rest at time

a) Find the time it takes to accelerate the flywheel to if the angular acceleration is .

Express your answer in terms of and .

b)

Find the angle through which the flywheel will have turned during the time it takes for it to accelerate from rest up to angular velocity.

Express your answer in terms of some or all of the following: , , and .
