Some bacteria are propelled by biological motors that spin hairlike flagella. A typical bacterial motor turning at a constant angular velocity has a radius of 1.5 × 10-8 m, and a tangential speed at the rim of 2.3 × 10-5 m/s. (a) What is the angular speed (the magnitude of the angular velocity) of this bacterial motor? (b) How long does it take the motor to make one revolution?
