you have the angular speed, so work out the angle it turns through in 6s

so the object is rotating in a circle right? you have the start position and the angle it turns through in a second. You can find the realtive position to p by finding where it is after 6s. Hopefully after that you'll see the answer

so just multiply 6 by the angular speed

2nd question: even if I did 6xpi/2 I'd get 3pi/2 which isn't right.

still confused, 1st question: why multiply 6 by angular speed(w), as far as am aware theres no formula involving w and t

2nd question: even if I did 6xpi/2 I'd get 3pi/2 which isn't right.

ok so the question asks you for the displacement of P after 6s. To find the displacement youre going to need to know where it is on the circle after 6s. The angular velocity tells you where it is on the circle after 1s (pi/2) so on the opposite side to where it started. To find the total angle it turned through, multiply by 6 - Um you should've got 3pi lol. To complete one full revolution, P needs to turn through 2pi, but it turns through 3pi in 6 so there's that extra half turn form the pi left over. So after 6s the particle is on the opposite side. Hopefully now u can find the relative displacement from its start, using the radius given in the question

=2pix(0.8)=8/5 pi

then do I do 8/5 pi / pi from the pi left over to get the displacement?

6 x pi/2 = 3pi that is the ANGLE you have turned through - so where is this on the circle and so what is the displacement?

**Muttley79**)6 x pi/2 = 3pi that is the ANGLE you have turned through - so where is this on the circle and so what is the displacement?

uhh i understood what you said but can't the displacement be found using 2pixr=circumference

=2pix(0.8)=8/5 pi

then do I do 8/5 pi / pi from the pi left over to get the displacement?

Displacemnet is the straight line distance from where it started.

um I haven't really understood what u did? Calculate the circumference and divided by pi?

i know displacement is the radius but I'm still confused, I understood your explanations , wait so do I just do 2pi(1.6) I still don't think that it is right though

nevermind, is the displacement 1.6? since P is now at -0.8 from 0.8 and doing 0.8--0.8 gives u the straight line distance which is 1.6 thank u guys so much i got really confused as P is in opposite direction from 1.5th of the revolution and displacement is straight line relationship from where it was to where it is thanks for helping me for a 1 marker lol

Where on the circle is it after 6 seconds? Angle 3pi is where? You then find the straight line [ie no pi] distance.
