Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These are some rough notes I typed up, maybe someone can expand on them. :) "small wheel = 0.4 m big wheel = 1 m small wheel makes 860* in 3 seconds. 860*/3 seconds = 286.67*/sec = 5 rads/sec = 2 m/sec 2 m/sec = 2 rads/sec on the larger wheel" You will have to note that rads are converted to meters depending on the size of the wheel.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3how many degrees is a full rotation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3then we should start by finding out how many 360s are in 860 what is 860/360?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3right, or if we keep it in fraction form 2 and 7/18 now each rotation is also a circumference, multipy that by the circumference of the little one and that is how far the belt travels in 3 seconds

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\frac{860}{360}~2\pi~r=d\] d is the distance covered, and the belt moves this distance so we need to determine how many of the large circumference goes into d \[\frac d{2\pi R}=k\] k is the number of times the large wheel has rotated in 3 seconds.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3since one rotation is equal to 2pi in general \[2\pi*\frac a{360}*\frac{2\pi~r}{2\pi~R}\] \[2\pi*\frac a{360}*\frac{r}{R}\] and since this is in 3 seconds, we want 1/3 of it \[\frac23\pi*\frac a{360}*\frac{r}{R}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Whats R for? its that the large wheel radius

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yes :) large R for the larger Radius

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3strategy determine the number of rotations made: 860/360 that tells us how many circumferences have been made, multiply it by 2pi r to determine the number of Larger circumferences it takes to travel the same distance, divide by 2 pi R this tells us the number of times the larger wheel has turned, and each turn is equal to 2pi radians adjust it, since this is the speed for a 3 sec interval ... divide it by 3 to get a 1 sec interval

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1o whats the a/360 for? what a?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3what did we divide by 360 to start with?

amistre64
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3in order to determine the number of times the small wheel has turned; we take its overall degree, and divide it by 360.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3do you need an exact result? or an decimal approximation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it just say determine the angular velocity in radians per second, of large wheel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\frac{86}{135}\pi\approx 2.0013\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3unless it asks you to approximate it, id leave it as an exact value ... but thats just me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok quick question if your ask to find the linear velocity is there like a pattern/structure that you can follow like what you give me for the angular velocity?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3linear velocity is simply how fast the belt is moving determine how many rotations we make, and that determines how many circumferences we can stretch out. dw:1433642163240:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if you know how many circumference you can travel in a time frame, you have a linear speed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\frac a{360}*2\pi~r\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and what if the angular velocity was per hour instead of per second would that change anything?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3just the time frame.

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if you know how far you go in 1 hour, you can determine how far you go in a day, or a second, or a week ... its all relative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how? would you have to divide by anything to find the other?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3lets say you are going 6 miles an hour, what would you do to determine the speed per minute?

amistre64
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.31 hour = 60 minutes sooo 6 miles per 60 minutes ... we only want 1 minutes, and we have 60 of them, we are 60 times to great, so yeah we divide for this 6/60 miles per 1 minute

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3how fast are we moving per day? 6 miles per hour, 24 hours in a day so 24*6 per 24 hours is our daily speed
