    So you are going on flat land in an improbable vehicle and you are going across the desert flats at 100 Km/hour. The tire is going 10 RPM.
    How big is the tire?

    Tire circumference is 1/6 of a kilometer. Or did you want the diameter?

    Yeah right. Although if you want to learn calculus further then read the Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica by Isaac Newton. It really helped me. Also, got to Khanacademy.com. It is where I learn extra maths in my spare time.

    I was surprised to learn the correct pronunciation, of principia, it is prin KIP eeah. I had been pronouncing it prin SIP eah. Great book, but I am going to wait till they make it into a movie....
