A Ferris wheel has a radius of 8 meters and rotates once every 15 seconds.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 10:1 scale model of the Ferris wheel also rotates once every 15 seconds.

Which has the higher Angular Velocity?

Solution: angular velocity = Change in rotation/change in time

Do I use the formula v = rw

I donâ€™t understand where to start this problem.
