The Equations of Rotational Kinematics help!

    1.

    Consider a fan that has rotated by a total of 2 complete revolutions from where it started. This quantity (2 revolutions) is analogous to what quantity in linear kinematics?

    Position

    Displacement

    Velocity

    Speed

    Time





    Time


    2. Relevant equations

    I am leaning towards velocity since displacement over time is velocity....

    3. The attempt at a solution
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



    2. Relevant equations

    Is time mentioned at all in the question, aside from the possible answers?

    no, it is not.

    Then it's probably not anything to do with time, like velocity or speed.

    so displacement
