Homework Help: Angular Velocity of LP record

  1. Oct 29, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The once-popular LP (long-play) records were 12 inches in diameter and turned at a constant 33(1/3) rpm.
    Find the angular speed of the LP in rad/s and its period in seconds.

    2. Relevant equations

    1 rpm=((2∏)/60)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    for ω i got 3.49

    I need help with finding its period in seconds, T.
