A wheel with a 21inch diameter is turning at the rate of 58 revolutions per minute. To the nearest inch, what is the velocity of a point on the rim in inches/minutes?
3879 inches/minutes
is my answer correct??

trigonometry 
Damon,
10.5 in * 58 rev/min * 2 pi radians/rev = I get 3826 in/min

trigonometry 
Damon,
By the way, earlier I notice you were looking for a calculator:

trigonometry 
y912f,
yes,..the guy was teaching me how to do this problem
[pi,3pi/2];tan s=1
can you help..i need to use this link to figure out this problem..please guide me through:) 
trigonometry 
Damon,
We are in quadrant 3
so add 180 degrees or pi radians to answer whatever we get first
on calculator
click radians on upper right
type in the number 1
click atan
answer .785 ......
click +
click Pi
click =
get 3.926...... radians 
trigonometry 
y912f,
so..5pi/4
thank you very very much..i just have one LAST problem i need help with
A pulley of radius 11cm rotates 5 times in 64 seconds. Find the angular velocity of the pulley.
thnks again 
trigonometry 
y912f,
i think you have to use the formula
w=pi/t
maybe.. 
trigonometry 
Damon,
Yes, 5 pi/4
You could have seen that from the start because you probably know that the tan of 45 deg (Pi/4 radians) is 1 and pi/4 + pi = 5 pi/4

radius has noting to do with this
5 * 2 pi radians / 64 s
= (10/64) pi rad/s = .49 rad/s 
0.49 rad/s 
Damon,
.49 I mean

trigonometry 
y912f,
so 5pi/32
thank you soo much!!!!
