(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The sweep second hand of a clock has a length of 2.0 cm.

2. Relevant equations

a) What is the speed of the sweep second hand tip at the 6 o'clock position?

b) What is the velocity of the sweep second hand tip at the 6 o'clock position?

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't really understand how to use 2.0 cm to solve the problem. Do you figure out the length it takes for the second hand to reach 6 o'clock and divided 2.0 cm by the answer?
