# Problem: What is the angular speed of the tip of the minute hand on a clock, in rad/s?

###### FREE Expert Solution

Angular speed:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\omega }}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{∆}\mathbf{\theta }}{\mathbf{∆}\mathbf{t}}}$

Angular speed is independent of the radius.

In 60 minutes, the minute hand covers 2π radians (a full rotation).
