Angular speed 2017-01-21
From Kenzi:
A wheel of radius 14 inches is rotating 45/sec. What is the linear speed in in/sec and the angular speed in RPM? (Round your answers to three decimal places)

I already found the linear speed. I got 10.996 in/sec. I don't know how to find the angular speed.

Revolutions per minute 2014-10-24
From Edward:
Hello; I have a 28.2 inch diameter tire; do not worry about engine RPM or gear ratios, please tell me what the RPM of that tire is at 8 MPH and 64 MPH. Thank you.

Sincerely; Edward

Revolutions per second 2012-10-18
From Crystal:
Suppose a car wheel is 26 inches in diameter.
a) If the tire completes one rotation, how far would the car travel?
b) If the car is traveling at 60 miles per hour, how fast is the car wheel spinning in revolutions per second?

Angular speed 2010-12-03
From Julie:
If the angular speed of a circle is 360 degrees divided by the time it took to rotate, how do I calculate ones that have greater rotations than the amount of time? I mean, you calculate the angular speed of a merry-go-around that spins once every 5 seconds by doing 360degrees/5 sec, but how do you calculate a merry-go-around that has 16 rotations every 4 seconds?

Angular speed 2009-11-19
From Atalie:
The engine of a sports car rotates at 5000 revolution per minute. Calculate the angular speed of the engine in radians per second, given that 2pi radians = 1 revolution

Angular & Linear Speed from a Sine Graph 2008-08-19
From Kim:
Kim, a student: I am given a graph with a wave. The amplitude is 5cm and the period is 4cm. I am suppose to find the angular speed. What I need to know is the formula for angular speed and how do I use these numbers to get the correct answer.

The current in a river 2008-06-12
From Joi:
To approximate the speed of the current of a river, a circular paddle wheel with radius 4 feet is lowered into the water. If the current causes the wheel to rotate at a speed of 10 revolutions per minute, what is the speed of the current? Express your answer in miles per hour.

Radians 2008-02-08
From Brian:
I'm teaching Precalculus right now and will be covering the formula to convert angular speed into linear speed. My question is about the units involved. Using v=rw, if r is mearsured in feet and w is measured in radians/second then v is measured in ft/sec. What happened to the units of radians? I can't find a good way to explain why they are not part of units for velocity. Do you have a good explanation? Thanks,

Angular speed 2007-01-18
From Cristina:
A car is moving at a rate of 50 miles per hour, and the diameter of its wheels is 2.5 feet.
a) Find the number of revolutions per minute the wheels are rotating.
b) Find the angular speed of the wheels in radians per minute.
