velocity = 0.5 m/s(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

radius = 1 m

[tex]\omega = \frac{v}{r}[/tex]

[tex]\omega = \frac{0.5 m/s}{1 m}[/tex]

the meters cancel and I'm left with

[tex]\omega = 0.5 s[/tex]

But [tex]\omega[/tex] is supposed to be expressed in radians/s

How do I get those output units with the given input units?
