2. Relevant equations

v = r' $$\hat{r}$$ + r*θ' (^θ)

3. The attempt at a solution

I was sure I knew how to do this question but made a mistake somewhere, because my answer is not right. So here is my working out.

l r' l = 11mm/s
Θ' = ?
r = 78mm

Looking at the question above.

Re: Velocity

The angular velocity is usually given in radian/s. Check the answer in your book. Otherwise your result looks OK.

Re: Velocity

There are two answer rads/s and degs/s, both are not the same as my answer.

I definitely did something wrong.

Re: Velocity

The sign can be wrong. The velocity shown makes the angle θ smaller.
