Angular velocity

Find the angular velocity of the minutes arm and the second's arm of a clock. Deduce the linear speed of the trip of each arm if their lengths are 2 cm and 3 cm respectively.

For minute arm,
anguler velocity=anguler displasmnt / time
=(2*pi/3600)s-1
for second arm,
anguler velocity=anguler displasmnt / time
=(2*pi/60)s-1

for minute arm,
linear spead = (anguler velocity*2)cms-1

for second arm,
linear spead = (anguler velocity*3)cms-1
