1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A wheel of diameter of .68m roll without slipping. A point at the top of the wheel moves witha tangential speed of 5.4m/s. Whaat speed is the axle of the wheel moving? What is the angular speed of the wheel?

How would i approach to do this problem, what equations would i need to use ?

ok for speed of axle i took .5 * 5.4 to get 2.7m/s

and for angular speed of wheel i took 5.4mn/s * .34m to get 15.9 rad/s

am i correct ?

Hi keylostman!

Are you the same person as th3plan?

Why have you posted the same problem twice?
