Physics problem

  1. Dec 10, 2006 #1
    The rotational speed of the minute hand of a watch is:

    w= anglular displacement/ time
    w=2pi radian in a circle/ 3600 seconds in one rotation
    The reason I put 3600 seconds in the denominator is because it takes that many seconds for the minute hand of a clock to make one full revolution

    60minutes X 60second= 3600

    please tell me if I am right or not. If not please tell me what to correct. Thank you. :confused:
