Homework Help: physics

Posted by Riya on Thursday, March 29, 2012 at 10:40pm.

A spoked wheel with a radius of 44.0 cm and a mass of 1.90 kg is mounted horizontally on frictionless bearings. JiaJun puts his 0.550-kg guinea pig on the outer edge of the wheel. The guinea pig begins to run along the edge of the wheel with a speed of 18.0 cm/s with respect to the ground. What is the angular velocity of the wheel? Assume the spokes of the wheel have negligible mass.
rad/s

Honestly, I don't know how to calculate this, I have been trying to figure out but I have been guessing, and am sure they aren't write because they gave me wrong answers. Need help thank you in advance.
