If a turntable rotates 720 degrees/second, how many revolutions does it make in 1 minute.
The turntable rotates 720 degrees per second
We need to determine how many revolutions it makes in one minutes.
1 min = 60 second
Also we know that:
1 revolution = 360 degrees.
Then let us convert :
==> (720 degrees/sec) * (60 second/minute) * ( 1 revolution / 360 degrees) = 720 * 60 / 360 ) (degree*second*rev / sec* min *degree)
= 120 revolution / minute
Then the turntable makes 120 revolutions in one minute.
