In this problem, we're only concerned with the position of the minute hand.

Therefore, to calculate the angular position of the minute hand, we'll have to ignore the hours.

Nonetheless, we'll only focus on the minutes.

We'll also assume that the minute hand makes an angle of 180° when it moves from 3 to 9.

Part A What is the angular position in radians of the minute hand of a clock at 3:30? Express your answer using three significant figures. θ =__ rad

Part B What is the angular position in radians of the minute hand of a clock at 7:15?Express your answer using three significant figures. θ =__ rad

Part C What is the angular position in radians of the minute hand of a clock at 10:35? Express your answer using three significant figures. θ =__ rad
