After fixing a flat tire on a bicycle you give the wheel a spin. (a) If its initial angular speed was 5.17 rad/s and it rotated 10.6 revolutions before coming to rest, what was its average angular acceleration? rad/s2 (b) For what length of time did the wheel rotate? s

How fast is a bicycle traveling in feet per second if a wheel has a 21-in. diameter and the angular speed of the wheel is 33 radians per second? The speed of the bicycle is the same as the linear speed of a wheel.
