What equation relates both?

$$v = \omega r$$

the answer in the back of the book says179 m/s. but when i try that formula it comes out as 311.6

Oh sorry, yes the book is right

A rev is equal to 2 pi radians, and a minute is equal to 60 second. You need to homogenize (spl?) your units.

the rev/min is 47.81 rev/sec

sorry its 47.12 rad/s
