Name: Introductory Angular Velocity Problem - A Turning Bike Tire
Category: Rotational Motion
Date Added: 2017-06-26
Submitter: Flipping Physics

The wheel of a bike rotates exactly 3 times in 12.2 seconds. What is the average angular velocity of the wheel in (a) radians per second and (b) revolutions per minute?

Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 topic.
