Homework Help: How to convert m/s to radians?

  1. Feb 14, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    the question is a particle move in a circle of radius 20cm with a linear speed of 10 m\s find angular angular velocity ! i have tried it many time's but it didn't worked

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    How long will it take to complete a circle? How many radians in a full circle?

    What is your understanding of the definition of a radian? If you have an arc of a circle of length s, and the radius of the circle is r, what is the angle in radians that is subtended by the arc?

    I don't understand you're question, Shania, m/s is a unit for velocity, but radians is a unit for angle measurement.
    What is you're interpretation of angular velocity?
