A wheel turns through 66,000deg in a minute. How many radians does it turn through in one second?

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

`180^0 = pi rad`

`1^0 = pi/180 rad`

Degrees per minute `= 66000`

Degrees per second `=66000/60 =1100`

Radians per second `=(1100xxpi/180) = 19.2rad`

*So the wheel turns 19.2 radians per second*
