The tires of a car make 75 revolutions as the car reduces its speed uniformly from 95 km/hr to 55 km. hr. the tires have a diameter of 0.80 m. (a) what was the angular acceleration of the tires? (b) if the car continues to decelerate at this rate, how much more time is required for it to stop and (c) how far does it go?

95 km/h = 26.39 m/s (95000m/3600 secs) 55 km/h = 15.28 m/s (55000m/3600 secs) 75 revolutions = 75 x 2pi = 471.23 radians radius = 0.80/2 = 0.40m v/r = omega (rad/s) 26.39/0.40 = 65.97 rad/s 15.28/0.40 = 38.20 rad/s s/((vi + vf)/2) = t 471.23 /((65.97 + 38.20)/2) = 9.04 secs (vf - vi)/t = a (38.20 - 65.97)/9.04 = -3.0719 The angular acceleration of the tires = -3.0719 rad/s^2 Time is required for it to stop (0 - 38.20)/ -3.0719 = 12.43 secs How far does it go? 65.97 - 38.20 = 27.77 M
