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 1.9x10-8m, and a tangential speed at the rim of 2.5x10-5 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?

    v=ω•R, => ω=v/R,
    T=2π/ω
