As you drive down the road at 18 m/s , you press on the gas pedal and speed up with a uniform acceleration of 1.22 m/s2 for 0.70 s .?
If the tires on your car have a radius of 33 cm, what is their angular displacement during this period of acceleration?
Express your answer using two significant figures.

angular speed ω = V/r = 18/(1/3) = 54 rad/sec
angular acceleration α = at/r = 1.22/(1/3) = 3.66 rad/sec^2
angle Θ = ω*t+ α/2*t^2 = 54*0.7+1.83*0.7^2 = 38.70 radians ... rounded up to 39
