The wheels of a car make 2500 revolutions in covering a distance of 4.95 km. Find the diameter of a wheel.
Let the diameter of the wheel be ‘d’ cm
Total distance covered in 250 revolutions = 49.5 km = 495000 m
⇒ Distance covered in one revolution = 198 cm → eqn1
Also, Distance covered in one revolution = circumference of wheel
∴ Distance covered in one revolution = πD where d = diameter of wheel
Equate equation 1 and 2 we get,
⟹ d = 9×7
⟹ d = 63 cm
The diameter of the wheel is 63 cm.
