**Michael**, Monday, November 19, 2007 at 6:39pmSince you are so adamant on an answer, I will attempt this. I'm not 100% sure, though.

a. angular velocity = angle traversed / time

a = 35 / .5 = 70 degrees per second

b. Multiply angular velocity by radius.

70 * ((9+6)/2)

70 * 7.5

525 ft/sec

Be warned... I'm not sure about those answers.
