A vehicle having wheels with a diameter of 58cm, is powered by motors that have a maximum speed of 6024 rpm. Each motor is coupled to the wheel using a gear mechanism as shown in figure 2-14. Calculate the required gear ratio if the vehicle's maximum speed is 190.2 km/hr.
Note: Answer is a unitless value, correct upto two decimals.
No clue. C = 2 * PI * R?
The Attempt at a Solution
I converted 6024 rpm to radians per second hoping I could do the same with hm/hr, but I do not know the radius of the tire? See photo attache for diagram. Thanks for help.
