# Math Help - Linear and angular speed

1. ## Linear and angular speed

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?

Assuming that second is "radians per hour" you are exactly right.
