Answer :

The diameter of the wheel of the car = 80 cm

Radius (*r*) of the wheel of the car = 40 cm

Circumference of wheel = 2π*r*

⇒ 2π (40) = 80π cm

Speed of car = 66 km/hour

1 km = 1000 m and 1m = 100 cm⇒ 1 km = 100000 cm

= 110000 cm/min

As distance= speed × time

Distance traveled by car in 10 minutes

= 110000 × 10

= 1100000 cm

Let the number of revolutions of the wheel of the car be "*n".*

n × Distance travelled in 1 revolution (i.e., circumference)

(In one revolution of the wheel, a wheel covers the distance equal to its circumference)

= Distance travelled in 10 minutes

n × 80 π = 1100000

n =

=

= 4375

**Therefore, each wheel of the car will make 4375 revolutions.**
