Q:
# You are given that a wheel has a radius of 2 feet and a spin rate of 10 revolutions per minute. Describe how you would determine the linear velocity, in feet per minute, of a point on the edge of the wheel.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Linear velocity of point on the edge of wheel having radius of 2 feet and spin rate of 10 revolution per minute is 125.71 feet per minute.
Step-by-step explanation:Given that radius of wheel = 2 feet
There is a point on edge of the wheel .we need to determine linear velocity of that point.
Let’s first calculate distance covered by a point when 1 revolution of wheel is complete.
When one revolution is complete the distance traveled by a point on edge of the wheel will be equal to circumference of the wheel
In one revolution, point covers distance of feet
So in 10 revolution, point covers distance of
Given that in a minute, wheel takes 10 revolution.
Which means in a minute , point covers feet that is feet per minute = 125.71 feet per minute
Hence linear velocity of point on the edge of wheel having radius of 2 feet and spin rate of 10 revolution per minute is 125.71 feet per minute.
