Homework Help: Angular Velocity the Earth

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

    I'd like to know if I am on the right track. I'm not sure if I am doing this right....

    Find the angular velocity, in rad/s, of the earth due to its daily spin on its axis, the earth due to its yearly motion around the sun, and our moon due to its monthly motion around the earth.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Please see the attachment I scanned my work!

    You are doing it correctly. The two parts you have done are right.
    And a quick couple google searches reveals your approximate answers to be very close indeed to the real values.
