Textbook Problem

A rigid body is rotating counterclockwise about a fixed axis. Each of the following pairs of quantities represents an initial angular position and a final angular position of the rigid body. Which of the sets can occur only if the rigid body rotates through more than 180°? (a) 3 rad, 6 rad; (b) −1 rad, 1 rad; (c) 1 rad, 5 rad.

To determine

Whether the rigid body rotates more than 180° for the required angular displacement.


For the rigid body to rotate more than 180° the angular displacement must be more than 3.14rad.


Angular displacement for (c) is,


The angular displacement is more than 3.14rad. Hence, the rigid body does not rotate more than 180°. Therefore, option (c) is correct.

Angular displacement for (a) is,


The angular displacement is less than 3
