Suppose a dirt bike race is taking place on a flat surface 5 m above the ground.  Suppose one of the bike wheels has a radius of 26.2 cm and it has a nail stuck in it.  What is the maximum height that the nail obtains in cm with respect to the ground?


Thanks in advance!

If the radius is 26.2 cm  the diameter is twice that  =  52.4 cm


And 5m   =  500 cm


So......the nail reaches a max height (with respect to the ground)  of  


500 + 52.4   =  552.4 cm
