Homework Help: physics

Posted by Natasha on Friday, March 30, 2012 at 5:40pm.

Some bacteria are propelled by biological motors that spin hair-like flagella. A typical bacterial motor turning at a constant angular velocity has a radius of 1.70e-8 m, and a tangential speed at the rim of 2.32 e-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?
