Homework Help: College Physics

Posted by Angela on Monday, March 5, 2012 at 6:55pm.

Some bacteria are propelled by motors that spin hair-like flagella. A typical bacterial motor turning at a constant angular velocity has a radius of 1.1x10-8m, and a tangential speed at the rim of 2.0x10-5 m/s. (a) What is the angular speed (the magnitude of the angular velocity) of this bacterial motor? (b) How long does it take the motor to make one revolution?


I was able to answer a) but I am not sure what equation to use for part b. Below is what I have calculate. A helpful nudge in the right way would be great!

VT = 2.0x10-5 m/s
r = 1.1x10-8m
w = 1818.18 rad/s

a)w = (2.0x10-5 m/s = 1.1x10-8m)t
