B. What is its angular acceleration?

C. How much time is required for it to complete its first 20 of the 40 revolutions?

The wheel shown below has eight equally spaced spokes and a radius of 30 cm. It is mounted on a fixed axle and is spinning at 2.5 rev/sec. You want to shoot a 20 cm long arrow without hitting any of the spokes. Assume the arrow and the spokes are very thin.

B. Does it matter where between the axle and the rim of the wheel you aim? If so what is the best location?
