Homework Help: Simple angular distance

  1. Nov 1, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    running on a circular track w/ radius of .450 km and runs a distance of 2.54 km. what is the angular distance in radians.

    2. Relevant equations
    theta = s/r

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I assume the 2.54 km would be the arc length? so would the answer just be 2.54/.450 = 5.65 rad?
