1. Answer :

Let θ be the angular distance (in radians) covered in 8 revolutions.

The angular distance (in radians) covered in one revolution is equal to 2π.

Then, the angular distance covered in 8 revolutions :

θ = 8 x 2π

θ = 16π radians

Formula to find the angular speed :

ω = θ/t

Substitute θ = 16π and t = 20.

ω = 16π/20 radians/sec

ω  2.51 radians/sec

2. Answer :

Let θ be the angular distance (in radians) covered by the carousel in 4 revolutions.

The angular distance (in radians) covered in one revolution is equal to 2π.

Then, the angular distance covered in 4 revolutions :

θ = 4 x 2π

θ = 8π radians

Formula to find the angular speed :

ω = θ/t

Substitute θ = 8π and t = 1.

ω = 8π/1 radians/sec

ω = 8π radians/sec

ω  25.13 radians/sec

3. Answer :

Let θ be the angular distance (in radians) covered by the Blu-ray disc in 10,000 revolutions.

The angular distance (in radians) covered in one revolution is equal to 2π.

Then, the angular distance covered in 10,000 revolutions in 1 minute :

θ = 10,000 x 2π

θ = 20,000π radians

Formula to find the angular speed :

ω = θ/t

Substitute θ = 20,000π and t = 1.

ω = 20,000π/1 radians/min 

ω = 20,000π radians/min

We have to convert the above speed from radians per minute to radians per second.

From the above result, it is clear that the angular distance covered in 1 minute is equal to 20,000π radians.

1 minute ----> 20,000π radians

60 seconds ----> 20,000π radians

(60 seconds)/60 ----> (20,000π/60) radians

1 second ----> (20,000π/60) radians

Therefore,

ω = (20,000π/60) radians/sec

ω  1047.20 radians/sec

4. Answer :

Let θ be the angular distance (in radians) covered by the tire in 490 revolutions.

The angular distance (in radians) covered in one revolution is equal to 2π.

Then, the angular distance covered in 490 revolutions :

θ = 490 x 2π

θ = 980π radians

Formula to find the angular speed :

ω = θ/t

Substitute θ = 980π and t = 1.

ω = 980π/1 radians/min

ω = 980π radians/min

We have to convert the above speed from radians per minute to radians per hour.

From the above result, it is clear that the angular distance covered in 1 minute is equal to 980π radians.

1 minute ----> 980π radians

60 x 1 minute ----> 60 x 980π radians

60 minutes ----> 58,800π radians

1 hour ----> 58,800π radians

Therefore,

ω = 58,800π radians/hr

ω  184,725.65 radians/hr
