How do I convert from radians per second to revolutions per minute?
2 steps:

First convert radians per second to revolutions per second Then convert revolutions per second to revolutions per minute: Or in 1 step:

i.e. putting them both together the conversion is: 2

A car travels 10km, one wheel has a radius of 30cm, find the angle it spins when it travels the 10km.

A car travels 10km, one wheel has a radius of 30cm, find the angle it spins when it travels the 10km.
1) First find the circumference of the wheel. This gives us the distance the car travels when the wheel turns one revolution.

We need to be careful and keep all of the units the same. So make sure you convert 30cm to metres first.

2) Now find out how many circumferences (revolutions) there are in 10km. So again first convert km to metres: 1km = 1000 metres. 3) Then finally convert revolutions to degrees.

i.e. 1 revolution = 360o

So the final answer is revolutions x 360o.

Thanks , This is basically what i did. I got 5305.164 revolutions. But Isaac Physics said it was wrong. BTW it asked for it in radians too. So i would assume i would have to leave my final answer as 5305?

You may want to pay attention to the significant figures of your answer. Isaac Physics is very particular about s.f.

Convert to radians first, multiply by 2 pi.

Careful with rounding.

final answer would be in radians so convert 5305 into radians and put to tsf which is 33000. This is three years late sorry.
