Cathy races on bicycle with 13-inch radius wheels. When she is traveling at a speed (linear) of 44 ft/sec, how many
revolutions per minute are her wheels making?
A circular saw has a cutting blade with a diameter of 10 inches. It spins at 2000 revolutions per minute (rpm). If
there are 12 cutting teeth per inch on the blade, how many teeth cross the cutting surface each second?
A circular blade on a saw has a diameter of 7.5 inches and rotates at 2400 rpm.
