### Customer Question

Speed = 180 inches per second =10.2 miles per hour = 16.45 km per hour

The acceleration the pebble is experiencing is the centrifugal force it is experiencing.

that force is equal to the pebble's mass times its velocity squared, then that figure divided by the radius of the wheel. You need to know the mass of the pebble.
