Homework Help: Calculate angular velocity and angular acceleration of a rotating mass

  1. May 15, 2013 #1
    I need to calculate the angular velocity of a 2kg mass rotating in a horizontal circle of 2m radius where 1 revolution takes 4 seconds



    ω=v/r



    My attempt was this : 4/360=.0111111×57.3=.636rs.

    welcome to pf!

    hi hshandarama! welcome to pf! :smile:
    but you don't know the speed, v (it certainly isn't 4) :redface:

    hint: angular velocity is radians per second :wink:

    Yeah i'm on it. 1.57 radians per second. Thanks
