I need help in answering this question:
A car is traveling down a road at 50 miles per hour. The car runs out of gas and drives allows the car to coast to a halt in order to get as close to the nearest gas station as possible. The car travels another 2.3 miles before continue to a stop.
a) find the angular velocity of the wheels before the car ran of of gas.
b) if the wheels have a diameter of 18in., find the number of times the wheels rotated from the time the car ram out of gas until if came to complete stop
