(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A rubber ball with a radius of .048 m rolls along the horizontal surface of a table with a constant linear speed v. When the ball rolls off the edge of the table, it falls 0.85 m to the floor below. If the ball completes 0.82 revolutions during its fall, what was its linear speed, v?

2. Relevant equations

I know to find linear speed the equation v=rw must be used.

Revolutions are changed to radians so it's 5.15 radians

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to turn revolutions into radians and then use the equation T=2pi/w

and then did v=rw. I don't really know where to begin this problem since the problem has revolutions and not rpm. When i solved it like rpm it didn't work.

please help me!! I'm so confused!!!
