Question #24: (please explain how you get your answer, showing units and work all the way through -- I often struggle to ascertain how certain values were reached, so please make it as clear as possible)

Modern wind turbines are larger than they appear, and despite their lazy motion, the speed of the blade’s tips can be quite high -- many times higher than the wind speed. A typical modern turbine has blades 56 m long and complete 13 revolutions every minute. What is the speed of the tip of the blade in miles per hour?
