Angular displacement of the wheel = \[\theta = 50 \times 2\pi = 100\pi\]

Initial angular velocity of the wheel = \[\omega_0  = 0\]

After, t = 5 seconds

\[\theta =  \omega_0 t + \frac{1}{2}\alpha t^2 \] 

\[ \Rightarrow 100\pi = \frac{1}{2} \times \alpha \times   (5 )^2 \] 

\[ \Rightarrow 100\pi = \frac{1}{2} \times \alpha \times   25\] 

\[ \Rightarrow \alpha = 8\pi\text{ rad/s}^2\text{ or }4\text{ rev/s}\] 

\[\omega =  \omega_0  + 2\alpha t\] 

\[ \Rightarrow \omega = 0 + 8\pi \times 5 = 40\pi\text{ rad/s}\] 

\[ \Rightarrow \omega = 20\text{ rev/s}\]

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
