Converting rev to rad/s

  1. Apr 7, 2005 #1
    Hello I have a question about converting rev to rad/s.


    If i had 1.13 revolutions for every 2.08s, how do I convert that into rad/s?

    1.13rev/2.08s * 2pi ?


    Thank you for you help.

    I do not quite understand 1 rev = 2pi rad. I have 1.13 rev per 2.08 seconds. So would 1.13/2.08 = rev? and then take that and multiply 2pi?

    [tex] \frac{1.13 \ \mbox{rev}}{2.08 \ \mbox{s}}=\frac{1.13\cdot 2\pi \ \mbox{rad}}{2.08 \ \mbox{s}}=\frac{1.13\cdot 2\pi}{2.08} \cdot \frac{\mbox{rad}}{\mbox{s}} [/tex]
