Use the interactive applet below to answer the following questions.

In our last activity we learned that a wheel travels the distance of its circumference every full rotation. How many degrees are in a full rotation?

Suppose a wheel has 6 spokes. How many **degrees** must the wheel turn to travel the distance from one spoke to the next?

Fill out the following table.

Suppose you have five wheels of radius 50cm each with a different number of spokes. Find the distance each wheel travels when it turns from one spoke to the next.

Use the applet to find how far an 8 spoke wheel of radius 20cm would travel if it had turned a 5 spoke rotation. Put your answer in a text box.
