A small hamster wheel has a radius of 4.5 inches. A large hamster wheel has a radius of 6 inches. In one revolution, how much farther will the large hamster wheel turn than the small hamster wheel? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of an inch.
Volume small wheel = 4/3×pie×4.5^3 = 381.7035 Volume large wheel = 4/3×pie×6^3 = 904.7787 How much further = 904.7787 - 381.7035 = 523.08 in^3
It would be the difference in their circumferences. So, Circumference of Large hamster wheel = 2 * 3.14 * 6 = 37.68 in Circumference of small hamster wheel = 2 * 3.14 * 4.5 = 28.26 in. Difference = 37.68 - 28.26 = 9.42 In short, Your Final Answer would be: 9.4 inches Hope this helps!
