Tammy is at the dentist's office waiting on her appointment. She notices that the 6inchlong minute hand is rotating around the clock and marking off time like degrees on a unit circle.
Part 3: How many radians on the unit circle would the minute hand travel from 0° if it were to move 5π inches?
Part 4: What is the coordinate point associated with this radian measure?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use the formula arc length = radius * angle in radians L = rC

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's what I tried but then I think I am now just over complicating it. So it would be 6(5π)? 30π?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think you have it backwards the radian measure of the angle is the arc length divided by the radius

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the arc length is \(5\pi\) and the radius is \(6\) the the measure of the angle is \[\frac{5\pi}{6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, I was trying to solve for arc length. Duh. I see it now. Thank you so much!! So with that I can easily find the coordinates based on the unit circle.
