Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1work out the ANGULAR velocity in rad/s (omega) the linear velocity of the equator is r times omega be careful of the units miles/sec miles per hour.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So Ill be using Linear Speed or Angular Speed formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe the formula is distance / time = speed. So if the distance is 88,848 miles, and the time is 9.9 hours...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What formula will be used? Need help plssss :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you divide the distance by time, then you get the speed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@KyanTheDoodle that is not correct the distance travelled by the equator is I rev in 9.9 hours I rev = 2 pi radians

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Doesn't necessarily mean I'm not correct. As 100 miles divided by 1 hour is still 100 miles an hour, but 100 miles divided by 2 hours is 50 miles an hour.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But I DO see that it's the diameter

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@KyanTheDoodle you have quoted the distance travelled as the diameter  that is NOT the distance travelled  so you are incorrect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, I literally just said that I was wrong on that part. But the rest is right. I just misread the situation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1another way to look at it is distance travelled = circumference of eqator (you know the radius so this is easy to work out) velocity is then circumference /time to rotate 1 circumference

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Meaning, Ill get the circumference by 2(pi)radius, then divide it by the time (9.9 hours) what unit is the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could do that, or just once with the diameter given.
