Ok, so I set 9.8=v^2/r , therefore v=[tex]\sqrt{9.8r}[/tex]. I converted r from miles into meters and got 3459.35. This seems like an easy enough question, but for some reason I keep getting it wrong. The answer I keep getting is 184.12395m/s, but the question asks for it in rad/s. I've looked everywhere on how to convert m/s to rad/s, but no luck. I don't know if the problem is the conversion or my method in attaining v. Also is v=angular speed? Thanks in advance to all you physics geniuses out there.
