Hi I need to find the angular velocity for a car moving at 100 km/h with a wheel radius of 35 cm V=ω*r so rearranged I have ω=v/r which is ω=27.78(m/s)/.35(m) ω=79.37 (s) ?? Have I got this right or am I way off? Thanks in advance. Last edited by skipjack; January 7th, 2015 at 08:42 PM.

$\displaystyle \omega =$ 79.4 radians/sec

You are correct. You just got the units wrong, which Skeeter corrected for you.
