    Finding angular velocity

    A charged particle in a magnetic field is spiralling along a path defined in cylindrical coordinates by
    r = 1 m and

    theta= 2z rad (z is in meters).

    The speed along the path is constant at V km/s with the value of V as given below.

    Find the angular velocity, w. Give your answer in rad/s

    Just take r, theta and whatever v is and put it in this equation: \omega=\frac{|\vec v|\sin\theta}{|\vec r|} which will give you the angular velocity.
