Okay, so there's a car traveling 97km/h (26.94 m/s). It's wheels have a diameter of 76cm (0.76 m), so the radius of the wheels are 0.38 m. I'm supposed to find the angular speed of the wheels about the axle.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can I say the speed of a tangent from the wheels is 26.94 m/s and use that to find the angular velocity?
