Ok, this is quite a big one.. I just need to know what formulas to use for certain parts of the question: Matty the moth is on a turntable spinning at (2 3/8) rotations in 8 seconds. Bob is 11cm away from the center. A)Find the angular displacement of Bob. B)Find the angular velocity in rads per second. C)Find the distance that Bob traveled in 8 seconds. D)Find the linear velocity of Bob in cm per second.

    \[\omega=\theta/t\] \[l=s/t\]

    w is the angular velocity. l is the linear velocity. s is the arc length you can also make another equation for l by using those formula \[s=\theta r\]

    so l is also \[l=\omega r\]

    also do not forget to convert revolutions (rev) to radians . theta should be in radians you can convert it by multiplying to 2pi

    \[\theta=revs \times2\pi rads\] Correct?
