Question:The tires on a new compact car have a diameter of 2.0 ft and are warranted for 62,000 miles.

(a) Determine the angle (in radians) through which one of these tires will rotate during the warranty period.

Each revolution moves the car pi*D = 6.283 feet

62000 miles is 327,360,000 feet

The number of revolutions is 5.210*10^7.

The number of radians is 2 pi times that... over 300 million

Hi! so you mean I have take 5.210*10^7 mutilply by 2 pi and than divide by 300 million. Just want to clarify thank you.
