The angular velocity of a fan blade is 6.2 radians per second.
Approximately how many revolutions does the fan blade make in 1.6 minutes?
Enter your answer, rounded to the nearest tenth of a revolution, in the box.
1.6 minutes is 1.6 x 60 = 96 seconds.
Its angular velocity is 6.2 radians per second: 6.2 radians/second x 96 seconds = 595.2 radians.
One revolution of the fan is one circumference of the fan, which is 2pi radians.
Dividing 595.2 radians by 2pi radians gives us an answer of 94.7 revolutions.
