## Question:

What is the angular speed in Radians per second (rad/s) of the minute hand on a clock?

## Rotational motion

We have to use the concept and equation of the rotational motion to find the solution to this problem. We have to use the rotational kinematics equation to establish the relation between the angular displacement, time and angular velocity

Time period to cover one rotation (t) = 60 s

Now the angular frequency is given by

{eq}\displaystyle w = \frac{2\pi }{t} \\ w = \frac{2\pi}{60} \\ w = 0.105 \ rad/s {/eq}

Hence the correct option is "C"
