1. The fan blade makes 112.3 revolutions in 1.4 minutes

2. The linear velocity of the gears is the same. The linear velocity is 432π centimeters per minuteB

Step-by-step explanation:

1.

∵ The angular velocity of a fan blade is 8.4 radians per second

– The revolution = the product of angular velocity and the time

of revolution ÷ 2π

∵ Revolutions = (ω . t)/2π

∵ The fan blade makes x revolutions in 1.4 minutes

∴ t = 1.4 minutes

– Change it to seconds

∵ 1 minute = 60 seconds

∴ 1.4 minutes = 1.4 × 60 = 84 seconds

– Substitute ω and t in the rule of revolutions

∴ Revolutions = ∴ Revolutions ≅ 112.2997278

∴ Revolutions ≅ 112.3

– Round it to the nearest tenth

The fan blade makes 112.3 revolutions in 1.4 minutes

2.

∵ The radius of the larger gear is 8 centimeters

∵ The radius of the small gear is 3 centimeters

∵ The two gears are connected by a chain

– That means the move the same distance together , where n is the number of revolution for each

gear and C is the circumference of each gear

The formula of the circumference of a circle is C = 2πr = 2π(3) = 6π = 2π(8) = 16π

∵ The smaller gear completes 24 revolutions in 20 seconds = 24

– Substitute them in the rule above to find ∵ 24 × 6π = × 16π

∴ 144π = × 16π

– Divide both sides by 16π

∴ 9 = ∴ The larger gear completes 9 revolutions in 20 seconds

The linear velocities of the two gears are equal because they move together and make the same distance in the same time

∵ The linear velocity = Distance ÷ Time

∵ Distance which each gear makes = C × n

∴ V = Let us use the smaller gear to find the linear velocity

∵ C = 6π centimeters

∵ n = 24 revolution

∵ t = 20 seconds

– Change it to minutes

∴ 20 seconds = 20 ÷ 60 = minute

∴ V = V = 432π cm/min

Let us check the answer by find the linear velocity fro the larger gear

∵ C = 16π centimeters

∵ n = 9 revolution

∵ t = minute

∴ V = V = 432π cm/min

The linear velocity of the gears is the same. The linear velocity is 432π centimeters per minute
