Determine the linear velocity of a point rotating at 25 revolutions per minute at a distance of 2 feet from the center of the rotating object. Give answer in feet/sec/

25/60 = 5/12 revs per second

Convert rev per second to rad/sec

5/12*2*pi = 2.618 rad/sec

at a distance of 2 feet:

2*2.618 = 5.236 feet/sec
