1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Bicycle Wheels The diameter of each wheel of a bicycle is 26 inches. If you are traveling at a speed of 35 miles per hour on this bicycle, through how many revolutions per minute are the wheels turning? 2. Relevant equations ω = θ/t v = s/t v = rω 3. The attempt at a solution I know the answer is 452.5 rpm, I looked in the back of the book. I just want to know the method for solving this kind of problem. I have looked at examples in the book, but they didn't have a problem like this solved, so I have no clue how to obtain the correct answer. Attempts: I used equation v = rω (above), and tired to convert 35 miles to inches (2,217,600 in.), and divide by the radius (13 in), and got: 1. 2,217,600 = 13ω 2. ω = 2,217,600/13 ≈ 170,584 Which is no where near the correct answer. That's is just one of the many methods I tried to use, and at this point I am desperate and frustrated, and I come to you all for help. Could you describe the steps to solve this problem? Thanks.
