Circular moton!

  1. Jan 14, 2007 #1

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A wheel 1 meter in diameter is rotating at 100 revolutions per minute along a level stretch. How far down the road does the wheel travel in hour?

    2. Relevant equations
    i think...

    3. The attempt at a solution
    100 revs=200(pi) radians/60sec * 3600sec=
    =10.47 * 3600sec
    =3.769*10^4 rads/hr

    S=(theta)(.5 meters)
    S=(3.769*10^4 rads/hr)(0.5m)
    S=1.88*10^4 m

    Please corroborate such undertakings!!!
