Hello, here's the question I'm not sure of the answer to. You are standing on the equator of the earth (radius 3960 miles). What is your linear and angular speed? I got 1036.73 mph for linear speed and pi/12 for angular speed. How wrong am I?

I got 1036.73 mph for linear speed and pi/12 for angular speed. How wrong am I? Assuming that second is "radians per hour" you are exactly right.
