A rigid object is rotating in a counterclockwise sense around a fixed axis. Each of the following pairs of quantities represents an initial angular position and a final angular position of the rigid object. Which of the sets can only occur if the rigid object rotates through more than 180°? 1 2 3 33% 33% 33% 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 1. 3 rad, 6 rad 2. -1 rad, 1 rad 3. 1 rad, 5 rad

Suppose that the change in angular position for each of the pairs of values in question 1 occurs in 1 s. Which choice represents the lowest average angular speed? 1 2 3 33% 33% 33% 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 1. 3 rad, 6 rad 2. -1 rad, 1 rad 3. 1 rad, 5 rad
Because all angular displacements occur in the same time interval, the displacement with the lowest value will be associated with the lowest average angular speed.

A rigid object is rotating with an angular speed ω < 0. The angular velocity vector ω and the angular acceleration vector α are antiparallel. The angular speed of the rigid object is 1 2 3 4 25% 25% 25% 25% 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 1. clockwise and increasing 2. clockwise and decreasing 3. counterclockwise and increasing 4. counterclockwise and decreasing
The fact that ω is negative indicates that we are dealing with an object that is rotating in the clockwise direction. We also know that when ω and α are antiparallel, ω must be decreasing – the object is slowing down. Therefore, the object is spinning more and more slowly (with less and less angular speed) in the clockwise, or negative, direction.
