A pitcher throws a curveball that reaches the catcher in 0.55 s. The ball curves because it is spinning at an average angular velocity of 335 rev/min (assumed constant) on its way to the catcher's mitt. What is the angular displacement of the baseball (in radians) as it travels from the pitcher to the catcher?

disp = angular vel x time
disp = (335x360x0.1745/60)x 0.55

0.55 s * 335/60 (rev/s) * 2 pi (rad/rev) => same answer. Looks good to me

Thanks!
