Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This question doesn't even require physics...it's purely mathematical: First, calculate the circumference of the circle. Then multiply that by 5 since it makes 5 revolutions per second. That will give you how far the dot traveled in 1 second. Then just multiply that times how many seconds are in 40 minutes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\omega=\frac{ \theta }{ t }\) is ok. You should just be careful to plug in the values in the right units.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What the question asks is the DISTANCE travelled, not the angle swept during that time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Distance in rotation is nothing but the angle right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, distance is distance (in metres), and angle is angle (in radians).
