How far does a point on the circumference travel if the wheel is rotated through an angle of 28.6 rads?
The wheel has a radius of 4.89m
R*theta = 28.6x4.89 = 139.85 meters
28.6 radians is about 4.55 turns of the wheel
If the wheel is rolling without slipping, it will move the same distance, 139.85 meters
