**Damon**, Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 8:08pmI guess we are to do miles per hour ?

v = omega * r

omega = 2 pi /24 hr

r = 6.4*10^3 km (1 mile/1.6 km) = 4,000 miles

so

v = 4000 miles (2 pi/ 24 hr)

=3333 miles/ hour

**drwls**, Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 8:09pm(2 pi * 6400 km)/(24 hours)

That will give you the answer in km/h. Divide by 1.6 for miles per hour.

Actually, a better conversion factor with five significant figures is 1.6093 km/mile

It makes no sense to have five significant figures for pi and only two for the km-to-miles factor

**Damon**, Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 8:14pmLOL - the textbook writer is using a calculator with pi on it but not the unit conversions :)

**Damon**, Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 8:18pmv = 4000 miles (2 pi/ 24 hr)

=1047.2 miles/ hour
