Rotating object angular velocity question

  1. Dec 9, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A rotating object has angular velocity 10radians/s. After one min through what angle has the object rotated in 1) radians 2) degrees



    2. Relevant equations

    Degrees = Radians x 180/Pi



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have tried and only come up with an answer of 3600 which i know is wrong


    3600 what?



    Any help is appreciated

    Thanks in advance!

    (rad/s)*(s)= radians

    also, 1 min = 60 s.

    So are we saying that 10*60 = 600 radians

    Therefore 6.00 = d x Pi/180

    6.00 = d x 0.0175

    6.00/0.0175 = d

    d = 343 degrees?

    or is it...... θ = (w0 + w)t/2

    θ = (0+10) x 60/2

    θ = 300 Degrees?

    Thanks in advance

    and π radians is 180°

    so 600 radians is?

    How can it be 600 radians that does not make sense! Im sorry but I dont understand

    10 radians/s

    in 1 s, object rotates 10 radians
    in 60s...

    so would the answer to the original question be

    1) 600 Radians

    2) 34377 Degrees

    Thanks in advance
