Freddie is at chess practice waiting on his opponent's next move. He notices that the 4inchlong minute hand is rotating around the clock and marking off time like degrees on a unit circle.
Part 1: How many radians does the minute hand move from 3:35 to 3:55? (Hint: Find the number of degrees per minute first.)
Part 2: How far does the tip of the minute hand travel during that time?
