a) Initial angular speed = 30 rad/s

b) Final angular speed = 70 rad/s

Explanation:

a) We have equation of motion s = ut + 0.5at²

Here s = 400 radians

t = 8 s

a = 5 rad/s²

Substituting

400 = u x 8 + 0.5 x 5 x 8²

u = 30 rad/s

Initial angular speed = 30 rad/s

b) We have equation of motion v = u + at

Here u = 30 rad/s

t = 8 s

a = 5 rad/s²

Substituting

v = 30 + 5 x 8 = 70 rad/s

Final angular speed = 70 rad/s
