A Ferris wheel at an amusement park having a diameter of 14 m completes one rotation in 45 s.

(a) What is the rotational speed of this Ferris wheel in revolution per minute and in degrees per second?

  • physics -

    rotation speed: 1rev/.75min divide that out, should be something like 1.33rev/min

  • physics -

    ok, but how do i get degrees per second?
