Suppose you are riding a stationary exercise bicycle, and the electronic meter indicates that the wheel is rotating at 8.4 rad/s. The wheel has a radius of 0.40 m. If you ride the bike for 2090 s, how far would you have gone if the bike could move?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

w= rad/ sec

2 pi= rev

v= m/s

2pi x r= circumference

.4m x 2pi= 2.5 m/ rev

2.5 m/rev x 8n4 rev/ sec = 21 m/s

21m/s x 2090 s = 43890 m
