**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known**

A hamster runs in its wheel for 2.7 hours every night. If the wheel has a 6.8 cm radius and its average angular velocity is 3.0 radians per second, how far does the hamster run in one night?

## Homework Equations

w= delta theta/change in time

## The Attempt at a Solution

6.8 cm x .001m/1 cm = .0068 m

2.7 hrs x 3600s/1 hr = 9720 s

c = 2pi(.0068m) = .0427 m

3.0 rad/s = delta theta / 9720 s

=29160

the correct answer is 2.0 x 10^3[/B]
