A wheel of a radius 8in is rotating 15degrees/sec. What is the linear speed, angular speed in rpm and angular speed in rads/sec?

2* pi radians = 360 degrees rpm - rotation per minute 60 seconds in a minute one rotation = 360 degres

so to convert 15degrees/sec would i multiply it by 2pi/360degrees?

then you would get radians per second

okay cool,then for rotations would it be 15deg/sec*60sec/min*2pi/360deg*(this is where i am stuck) do i convert it with 1rev/16pi in next?
anonymous
  • anonymous
actually it would be 16pi in/1 rev?

1 rotation = 360 degrees technically you dont need to convert to radians but if you did, you would use 1 rotation = 2 pi

oh cool. i was making that way harder than it was haha how would i find the linear velocity? i know its v=s/t, but how do i apply it to the problem?

my book give a bad definiton of linear velocity, can you please like explain what it is?
anonymous

there is angular velocity, basically how fast something is spinning then there is linear velocity, basically like a dot moving in a straight line you can think of it like a car driving in a straight line and its speed is its linear velocity now to convert angular velocity to linear velocity, you need to multiply the angular velocity by the radius \[\omega r = v\] where "w" also known as omega, is the angular velocity r is radius and v is linear velocity
