Radius and distance

  1. Nov 11, 2006 #1
    The warranty on a new tire says that an automobile can travel for a distance of 101000 km before the tire wears out. The radius of the tire is 0.33 m. How many revolutions does the tire make before wearing out ?

    Maybe I should try using C=2pi*r? and then multiply by the distance?

    Not quite write. Try something more like C*n =d.
