Omar races his bicycle for 152m. A wheel of his bicycle turns 38times as the bicycle travels this distance. What is the diameter of the wheel?

  • physics -

    N*pi*D = 152 m
    N is the number of turns (38)
    Solve for D

    D = 1.27 meters

    Most bicycles have diameters less than this.. more like 0.68 meters
