Question

A wheel of radius 0.300 m is mounted with frictionless bearings about an axle through its center. A light rope is wrapped around the wheel around the wheel and a block is suspended from the free end of the rope. When the system is released from rest, the block descends with a constant linear acceleration of 4.00 m/s2. As the block descends, what is the angular acceleration of the wheel (in rad/s2)?
