Problem 9a
Textbook Question

CALC A fan blade rotates with angular velocity given by ω_z(t) = g - bt^2, where g = 5.00 rad/s and b = 0.800 rad/s^3. (b) Calculate the instantaneous angular acceleration α_z at t = 3.00 s and the average angular acceleration α_av-z for the time interval t = 0 to t = 3.00 s. How do these two quantities compare? If they are different, why?
