1. A 75-g phonograph album of 30-cm diameter spins at 33.3 rpm. What is its kinetic energy?

2. 1/2mv2

3. well i think that kinetic energy is 1/2mv2 so is it like that but instead of v you put in the 33.3 rpm. like 1/2(75)(33.3)2 maybe?

You have to use omega as radians per second, mass has to be in kilograms.
