To solve, you need how far is travelled in 1 minute and the circumference of the wheel (in the same units) which gives how far the wheel travels in one revolution; then dividing the former by the latter will give the revolutions per minute:

I'll work in inches:

There are 63360 inches in 1 mile and 60 minutes in 1 hour, thus:

10mph = 10 x 63360 ÷ 60 inches per minute

= 10560 ipm

circumference = π x diameter

= 26π inches

⇒ revolutions per minute = 10560 ipm ÷ 26π ins

~= 129.3 rpm

Q: How many revolutions per minute are the wheels of a bicycle turning if the diameter is 26 inches and you are traveling at a speed of 10 miles per hour How many r?

A wheel 2 feet in diameter turning 10000 revolutions per hour is going, at the rim, 17.45 feet per second, or 25.6 miles per hour.

You find the diameter and divide it by two.

to convert revolutions per minute into the measure of degrees traveled, you would need to know for how long those revolutions were going on. revolutions per minute multiplied by the time it was turning gives you the degrees traveled. just like speed * time gives you distance, rotational speed * time gives you rotated distance

Bicycle wheels with a diameter of 26 inches, travelling 35 miles per hour, are turning 452 revolutions per minute. 35 miles per hour is 36,960 inches per minute (25 *5280 * 12 / 60) 26 inches diameter is 81.7 inches circumference, so the revolutions per minute is 36,960 / 81.7 or 452 revolutions per minute.

Depends on the diameter of the wheels. Formula should be (5 min)*(60 sec/min)*(3 rev/sec)*(? meters/rev) Where ? meters would be the circumference of the wheels which is pi*diameter
