Kenzi pose la question : 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. Penny Nom lui répond.

Edward pose la question : 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 Penny Nom lui répond.

Crystal pose la question : 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? Penny Nom lui répond.

Julie pose la question : 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 merrygoaround that spins once every 5 seconds
by doing 360degrees/5 sec, but how do you calculate a merrygoaround that has 16 rotations every 4 seconds? Penny Nom lui répond.

Kim pose la question : 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. Janice Cotcher lui répond. 





The current in a river 
20080612 

Joi pose la question : 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. Harley Weston lui répond. 





Radians 
20080208 

Brian pose la question : 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, Stephen La Rocque lui répond.
