Homework Help: Review for Test

  1. Mar 16, 2004 #1
    I can't find formula for determing the number of rotations a wheel makes in one minute.

    Diameter = 26"
    Traveling at 20 feet per second.
    is there a formula for RPM?

    Also need the formula to determine angular velocity.

    thanks

    Angular velocity W=V/R. You'll solve the given question after finding angular velocity
