Question

Semi-trailer trucks have an odometer on one hub of a trailer wheel. The hub is weighted so that it does not rotate, but it contains gears to count the number of wheel revolutions—it then calculates the distance traveled. If the wheel has a 1.08 m diameter and goes through 300,000 rotations, how many kilometers should the odometer read?.

    Answer:

    1020 km

    Explanation:

    A complete rotation of the wheel equals a distance of 1 circumference.

    The circumference is

    C = \pi d

    where d is the diameter of the wheel.

    300,000 rotations = 300000\pi d = 300000\times\pi\times1.08\text{ m} = 1017876.0\ldots\text{ m}

    In kilometers, this is = 1017876/1000 km = 1020 km
