Quick question about no. of revs

  1. Apr 6, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How many complete revolutions does the CD make as it spins to a stop?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I already know that the Angular displacement is 68.1 rad

    The answer is [tex]\frac{68.1}{2\pi}[/tex] = 107 revolutions

    however this is incorrect according to the book's answer's

    it gives me 10.83,i round it up to 11 and it is still incorrect.

    by the way the answer should be integer.
