A ferris wheel rotates at an angular velocity of .036 rad/s. At t=0min your friend Seth is at the very top of the ride. What is Seth's angular position at t=3 min, measured counterclockwise from the top?
Dooes the wheel spin counterclockwise? I assume it does.Otherwise subtract the answer from 2 pi
.036 radians/second * 180 seconds = 6.48 radians
a full circle is 2 pi = 6.28 radians
so it is a full circle + .2 radians
