How far does a point on the circumference travel if the wheel is rotated through an angle of 28.6 rads?

asked by Megan
  1. The wheel has a radius of 4.89m

  2. 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
