A certain CD has a playing time of 78 minutes. When the music starts, the CD is rotating at an angular speed of 4.8 * 10^2 revolutions per minute (rpm). At the end of the music, the CD is rotating at 2.1 * 10^2 rpm. Find the magnitude of the average angularacceleration of the CD. Express your answer in rad/s2.
