Suppose you are riding a stationary exercise bicycle, and the electronic meter indicates that the wheel is rotating at 10.4 rad/s. The wheel has a radius of 0.507 m. If you ride the bike for 42.6 min, how far would you have gone if the bike could move?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ok here is what i know

my W (angular speed) is 10.4 rad//s

Radius = 0.507 m

time = 42.6 min x 60 sec = 2556 sec

I tried to use this equation

theta = 1/2 (w0 + w )t and I got a value of 13291.2 radians can I use this value to find the distance, or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks
